Geez... another one. My BA is in History with a second major in
Political Science. How the hell did I end up doing sysadmin 8-)

I'll have to check the print reference.

As far as what'll happen after Saturday... I propose legislative
gridlock for at least two years... which is why the US elects (IMHO)
divided governments in an attempt to control left and right swings
of govenment without a public consensus.

As much as I hate Microsoft -- could we at least change the subject
line on these messages.
