Re: Too much to bear

Its probably less then that. We also have a low murder rate, and a low crime rate. I wonder if there is any correlation between the two.

Up until about 5 years ago, Bend's property crime rate well outstripped the national average. [more]

All the anti-gum folks

The only time I am anti-gum is when I find it stuck to the bottom of a table or on a subway handrail.

Re: The Most Terrified People in the World

I wonder how many posters actually read the entire 16 chapters of G H novel? I know I didn't.
