             IJMC - Al Gore Steals the Podium From Quayle

Mr. Potato(e) watch out, we have a new Veep for you to watch out for! I 
feel I really should check the validity of some of these quotes so be 
warned, I am not sure these are gospel. Either way, they make for fun 
reading...quick mention, the reason for three posts at once is that my 
local phone (near-)monopoly decided my service was coming through too 
well and that they needed to fix it...so my phone services have been iffy 
which includes my ADSL internet and my dialup. Allow me to say that some 
of my telephony is working now...not all. <sigh> Life moves on, and at 
least I can get out to the internet again...                        -dave
