    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I never been there and had no desire to go. But back in the late 50's and early 60's, I would have loved to see a game in Yankee Stadium. Mantle, Maris, Skowron, Berra, Ford, Terry, Kubek, Richardson, Lopez etc.

    the church is like whiskey. when taken in small doses it warms the soul and makes one feel better. when one overdoes either, it rots the brain and makes one sound like a babbling fool

    Good evening, Bonz.

    Continuity is important to both the Church and the people. Everything they do has meaning, and it probably is a comfort to believers that things remain the same, especially now when the world is confusing in its constant change. I'm not Catholic, so I don't know for sure, but that's what I'm told by friends who are Catholic.
