to fix this error on their part, so now if you get a PS2 from japan it will only be able to play

Bradley Email message @Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 14:23:55 - tu
This is the message I received from the Bradley campaign.
Dear Friends:
Over the past fifteen months, I have traveled the country, meeting with
Americans, hearing their stories, and presenting a vision of America where
universal health care, commonsense gun control, quality public education,
fundamental campaign finance reform, and deeper racial understanding are a reality.
Although today I withdraw from the race for the presidency, I am proud of
what we have accomplished together, and you should be, too. We've shaped
the national debate in this campaign. We have brought core Democratic
issues to the fore. And we've worked to create a new politics for America
and do the great things that still need to be done -- the things we can
now afford to do in these times of unprecedented prosperity, and the things
which if we did them would make us all stronger.
Ernestine and I couldn't have traveled this journey without you -- the
individuals who have supported my candidacy, volunteered on my campaign,
contributed money to my effort, and voted for me. I am truly grateful for
all you have given us -- for your enthusiasm, your time, your dedication,
and, most important, your unending belief in our ability to create a
better America. In particular, I want to thank the many young people whose
energy and idealism are a constant source of inspiration.
Democracy can only function properly if many citizens participate in the
political process. You have proven how true that is, and I thank you for
reaffirming for me the strength of individual Americans and the goodness in all of us.
Sincerely,
Bill Bradley

I did the Election Representive thing today. We had lots of fun, like someone put it "For Super Tuesday it was awful slow and not too super." I got a chance to participate in the process and I plan on doing it again in june. The silly thing is I volunteered and half way thru it I find out I am getting payed to do it. I was sworn in and I got to hand people ballots and ask them their names so we could look them up in the printouts. There was nothing except for the primary today, like in California they have other issues to get people to the polls.

Did the caucus thing today. It kinda boring NOT, I became a delegate for Bill Bradley in the Maine Democratic nominations this May. Oh yeah and I am going to help out in the Primary on Tuesday. All in all a pretty wacky day.
Rockland is pretty interesting numbers. something like 1300ish Replubicans, 1400ish Democrats 1400ish Independants, and like 5 Reform and 3 Greens. I am still a bit confused on the point of caucuses and primarys they both the the same things so how can a state have both and what does it all mean when your caucus votes differantly from the primary ? I really wanted to get involved, I guess I really can say I have. Booyeah!!!

From what I have heard the caucus is Non-binding, and it is used to pick delegates. I guess that answers my questions.

The next first Lady? NOOO!!!!!
I hope not. This is a photo of Tipper Gore from way back in 1985. It really jogged my memory? I was only? 14? wow and that was 15 years ago. She was involved with the PMRC? Parents against rock music.
I remember the hearings and Zappa spoofs on it. Also remember John Denver and the lead singer of Twisted Sister banding together against the anti-rock Tipper Gore and her religous friends.

How do you tie a tie useless??? @Thursday, March 2, 2000 - 08:13:24 - Billy Rhythm
Come on! I know all those knots by heart! I can even tie a bow tie. (A lost art. Not many can do it, with the advent of the clip on.) You should really know at least the four-in-hand knot. The double windsor is the most symmetrical, but it take a lot of t ie (noun) to tie (verb). Ron has never worn a tie in his ENTIRE LIFE!!! Oh well, stay home with the kiddies. Barry's at the conference, and Snake's home sick. Poor Art and me, left alone!

How do you Tie a Damn Tie??? @Wednesday, March 1, 2000 - 23:44:36 - TU
This is how I guess Kinda useful and useless at the same time.
