I couldn't agree more about the NRA situation.  It's really  scary.  What
I can't understand is why in all the things I have seen written about  why
the NRA position isn't a good idea is that none of them have pointed  out
that the real issue is money.  If people can't buy more guns and  
there will be less money for those who profit from that trade - and I'm  
the NRA lobby puts much money into the politics of it, but that money
comes from sales of guns and ammunition.  Oh well.

Glad you  didn't get dumped on!  That is very funny about the staged snow
scene  though. Hard to fathom,  we've seen so many pictures of back east  
hard to believe there weren't real places to dramatize!
Here the  big thing is the cop-killer fugitive. I don't live close to any of
that  action but I know lots of people who do. Our volunteer organization  
shut down for a while because they were using the ranger station for  
the search/SWAT teams.  Sure hope no one else gets hurt. The  police have
been so on edge they've turned two pickups into swiss cheese,  fortunately
the innocent people in them are going to live. Can't believe  the number of
bullet holes in everything else around though. I'm wondering  what would 
be like if the NRA's dream comes true and everyone is  armed...since the
highly-trained police cannot apparently contain  themselves to ascertain who
they're shooting at, how do we expect regular  citizens to handle themselves
in a scary situation? It's insanity. 
We  had cold weather Friday - great hopes for precipitation dashed once 
-  I think it rained once for a few minutes, and hailed for about 45  
two or three times during the day.  I've decided we have the  reverse of the
car-washing phenomenon. You know, you go get your car washed  so it rains?
Well here we all want it to rain.  But when it starts Jim  runs out to put
the horses in their stalls and as soon as they're all put  up, the rain
stops. I've decided next time they'll just have to get wet.
