Richard-
I must take exception to your unprofessional language referring to two professionals who have contributed far more of value to the list than you have. Take your language elsewhere!

That's enough from you two yo-yos.  If you want to criticize my country and
my President do it somewhere other than on this engineering site.

Ralph,
It is a truly regrettable thing over there.  I argued with a good friend
of mine from Florida- a fellow Canadian, who has immigrated there and
was a strong Bush supporter, before this began.  Unfortunately I was
right and I get no satisfaction from that.  I can only think of the
tremendous waste of young lives - particularly the US troops as I am
ex-military (as is my friend) and I met a lot of US service people when
I was still in.  But how can you undo a mistake like that?  Looking at
what I just wrote, I really don't have much to say but I thought you
might like a little support.
Gary
