The key word there is "trying"...
heh heh.

I need all the help I can get.

Thanks B.S... if I may call you that for short. ;-)

Go ahead, Dope, call me B.S. for short. Go ahead, make my day, to quote Clint Eastwood.

Well, if you're ok with B.S. for short, then I'll refer to Kerry as J.F.K. Maybe that will compensate. ;-)

Don't mess with JFK. JFK is JFK, Kerry is Kerry. Don't mix them up.

And don't mess with RFK (Robert Francis Kennedy).

They rank right up there with Lincoln and Roosevelt.

Keep that straight and we'll get along just fine, Dope.
