    I really would like to help out, man. But I'm pretty busy those days...
    Think I'll have to give it all a big miss.

    AS with many things 'merikan you have completely missed the plot. The States is a mish-mash of little countries (some even as small as England). We allow a freedom of movement so, eventually all the really boring people end up in places like Wyoming, Illinois, Dakota or Minnesota. They then take on the general weirdness of the locale and thus become interesting again; in a trippy lab-rat sorta way...

    ^ hey I didn't want to cause problems between the "yanks" & the "red coats," I was just saying this looks like fun!

    Only could get through 1/3 of Rocky Balboa, & Flags of Our Fathers was a pretty good flick! I hope Ira Hayes finally found some peace!

    BAD CMn! I wanted to see pictures of the weirdo artists in CM!
