VOL. V Issue 8K
An idea from a 14 year-old boy who lost his father on September 11th. All you're asked to do is type, point and click. He's got a really great idea. Thanks in advance:
Hello, I lost my Dad on September 11th; he was Chief Edward Geraghty, Battalion 9, New York City Fire Department. He lost his life with many other heroes that day, victims of the terrorists. Firefighters from all over have come to the aid and rescue of the tragedy in New York and Washington, D.C. Many firefighters lost their lives to save someone else's. The truth of the matter is, they do this every single day. They truly are heroes. I know many people feel helpless, especially those who live far from NYC an d D.C. We all want to do something to show our appreciation, our support. I think we can. In honor of the bravery, courage and determination of American firefighters there should be a day in our nation to Celebrate and appreciate their hard-work and never-ending passion for saving lives. I think we should honor all those other heroes who still live today. Will you help make every September 11th, "National Firefighters Day"? Please join me! Thank you.

How Hot and Dry is it?
Submitted by Joan Hansen
It is so hot and dry that:
The Baptist have started sprinkling,
The Methodist are using a wet wash cloth,
The Presbyterians are giving rain checks and,
The Catholics are turning wine back in to water.
Now friends, that is DRY.
North of 40: Husband-speak
by Red Green
"If your wife is having fun and you're not,
you're still having way more fun
than when you're having fun and she's not."
Communication is great, but you have to be aware that there are things you should never say to your wife. Here are a few examples:
"This is all your fault."
"I think your sister's lost weight."
"What have you done to your hair?"
"Let's not do anything special on our anniversary."
"The company would never fire me."
"It seems like we've been married forever."
Pollmaster General Results
by Jerry Hinkle
THE Pollmaster General
Well, I asked you to speak, and speak you did. Only 45% of those surveyed would never vote for a candidate who refuses to debate the issues. There are 27% who will vote for someone who won't debate at all. Some will give a free pass to a candidate, however. 18% will give Herseth a pass, while a paltry 9% will excuse Rounds from the debating ring.
There is still time to vote in the other polls if you'd like, so get to it.
