    I understand, and if I see an event that features limousine rides for the cure, or spa treatments for the cure, or dates with Brad Pitt for the cure, I'll be sure to forward the information to you. Your stoicism and self-denial are an example to us all. :D

    No, I just write checks for the causes I support, and I usually don't want to do/get anything in return. I never want the tote bags or coffee mugs. :p

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
