    I have read this whole thread, and i still don't know what you are talking about! Asking for a citation as verification of information and asking why a post is deleted is only the same in that they are both QUESTIONS! Using it as some form of wierd illiteration is just...odd, as this post I am answering to is! You sound as if you may have some sort of problem processing information, and the post above make you sound slightly paranoid...

      Nutty like a fruitcake, my dear friend. How good to hear from you. I adore you as a favorite coffee cup or warm sweater in Fall.

      All the lawyers and all the money will not deter justice for George Zimmerman's brutal slaying of that precious young life.

    Incredible. Not our usual humor, but we're still laughing over Bobcats 10:52 joke. It's that straight all-seeing eye guarding exit against intruders.
