With federal expenditures rapidly approaching 3 trillion annually, pretty much funded by the likes of you and me, we really SHOULD pay attention to how the budget is run. It bears no resemblance to how you or I would do it :( +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ neofast.net - fast internet for North East Oregon and South East Washington email me at mark at neofast dot net 541-969-8200 Direct commercial inquiries to purchasing at neofast dot net ----- Original Message ----- From: "chris cooper" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "'WISPA General List'" <email@example.com> Sent: Wednesday, November 08, 2006 9:20 AM Subject: RE: [WISPA] So, ya'll wondered who'd be the first to comment > ...And here I thought the big red bullseye was painted on the middle > east.
