    Ok, everyone raise your hand if you are in the 9th grade. Looks like all of you. You're excused. Now get off your mom and dads computer and read a book.

    @TheTruth...the avg. American reads at the 8th grade level. A few years ago, the fed's forced one baby car-seat manufacturer to announce a recall. Not for the seats themselves but for the instructions. They were written so that the average 10th grader would have no problem understanding them. The new instructions were written at the 8th. grade level.. So your 9th grade bar is one notch too high. (not to mention that your avg. university grad. is incapable of passing an 8th grade final exam...from the yr. 1901)

    Me? My spelling and especially my punctuation are atrocious. I'm a good enough reader though. The only time I'm sure of my spelling is when I'm quoting someone. I have some old pieces of paper with quotes I found interesting over the years, and I was very careful when i wrote them down. Spell check? If I did that, how could you know it's my post? Hmmm, I guess you would know either way. It has been said that it's not what you say but how you say it that is important, but that might not be true in my case. he-he

    Blame it on the wrong doers. I mean with all due respect ... Why would any woman care not having babies. If u look at cheney and bush ud be glad to celebrate the idea of abortion. Before we look for population growth its better we clean up by discouraging injustice no matter how rich the person who commit them. Its just discouraging to bring a child in such a cruel painful world where the majority are the victim of evil policies and law enforcers.

    It only takes a few to change things. Do you think that all of a sudden a million people had the same thought? It starts with one than another and so on. Control your own destiny, if you wait, life will pass you by. Phil the cancer remark......you are better than that.
