   You know, I just passed this in my mail spool again, and it pissed me 
off again.

   Generalizations suck.  Our government is a big bunch of assholes, and 
we have a lot of gun-toting rednecks that get stiff over the ancient 
technology of hurling little bits of lead around.  But that doesn't 
mean we're all like that.

   Especially people here.  You can generally expect a little better in 
this type of crowd.  Or, at least I did, until today.
