Rumor has it that Charles E. Fox may have mentioned these words:

> To add to our fun we have Fermi One, which almost went up, and Fermi Two,
>which breaks down every month or so, just across the south end of the
>Detroit River.

Here in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan we have the worst air in the U.P. of
Michigan. It all comes from Sault, Ontario thanks to Algoma Steel,
Abitibi-Price Paper & the northern winds to bring it all across.

Thankfully, we've had hydro-based power (water-spun turbines - great for
alleving those Y2K fears... ;-) since before 1900 - The Canadians finally
built a hydro plant a few years ago, too.

I'm not saying Detroit doesn't suck - IMHO it does... Bad. Really bad.
*Really, Really Bad.* And I like Windsor - been there a couple times, and
it seemed really nice.

And hopefully, *finally* those cold, northern winds that bring us so much
snow, might finally blow a Vax or two across the border to me... I'm still
waiting to see if there might be a few to snag.

Just wanted to let you know that not *all* Michiganders are stinkin',
pollutin' bastards... ;-)

P.S. If most parts of Canada are powered by non-hydro-based means, why do
you call it a "hydro bill?" I always wondered that...

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.
If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
