'Browsing' through it now and can't see where they say he has done anything illegal, it seems to state that he was a beneficiary - can't find where it says his actions were contrary to the law.

Anyway, I might find out more if I do more than just browse - it's such a long-arsed document, though . . .

Whatever the case, the dimwit senator should either charge him after this or retract and apologise.

I neitehr care for the guy nor do I dislike him, but good for him for speaking out. (Though he might yet choke on his words - can't imagine it though after his performances)

ok ok, i do admit he has balls - and his guilt will be difficult to prove - but the circumstantial evidence is pretty convincing.

AND if they don't charge him - he does kind of win.

all things considered - a lot more interesting than watching Tony Blair

Hi Wham

An interesting simile considering my Nick and Avatar! I too feel at times too blessed, too gifted. I have so much of the things that matter.

Re: the sometimes lack of coherent counter arguments. I chalk it up to 2 things:

the single, monotone dimentionality of the written word, and

cultural and language barriers diluting your message

This forum can never be the Nixon/Kennedy debates. More like a polyglot town meeting. A community of wayward travelers, both physically or spiritually. Rather like the clients of Rick's cafe in Casablanca. :wink:

Swoon . . . When I grow up I want to be as clever as you! Seriously! =D>

In spirit, always!

Truthfully, 42 doesn't look so bad. I wouldn't trade the last 13 years for anything. I've crammed a lot of living in that time. I'll stick to this sentiment by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles."

You've got to love the skin you're in...

I can guarantee that at 42 you are a long, long way from old. Truly in your prime. Thousands of attractions in the bedroom and out.

Happy Birthday

MHB - yes, i really do love your Nickname and when i first saw it, it put a smile on my face. My favorite scene is right near the end when the bell on the Christmas tree rings and the little girl says something about an angel just getting its wings...
