RE: A bag of rice

From:Tracey Smith

I must humbly disagree with these sentiments.  A little advice on
dissention is most always welcome and as some of us don't have/want to
waste money for internet acess at home this is a most welcome reprieve. 
That said, this is not the place for full blown political discussion.

AGREED.  Someone needs an AOL political chat-room in their life.

Regardless of my political leaning, the Histonet is
_no_ place for this.  (And my daughter and son-in-law
are Mennonites.)
