In response to Ian Meyer's message(s):
> Every once in a while, I get some junk email forwarded through and
> through that ends up at me. And sometimes, its just the wrong time of
> day, and I decide to have a little fun.
> Last night at 2 am, I checked my email, and because Mail had crashed
> earlier, it re-downloaded some emails, and at first I didn't realize
> this, so I read this crap that I had previously not read form the 21st.
> There were so many email addresses in it that when I tried to send out
> my response, the .mac mail server told me there were too many.
> What was it? Well, it was some trite little thing about North Carolina,
> and I remember something about possums sleeping in the middle of the
> road with their feet in the air.
> So I replied as follows:
>> Alright, first off, so there's no doubt why you all are getting this...
>> Its 2:30 AM, and I just checked my email and found something somewhat
>> funny that was preceeded by dozens upon dozens of email addresses that
>> no one had bothered to clean out. So I guess you all want me to have
>> your email address. Please be responsible. BCC and clean out the old
>> headers when forwarding.
>> Now, here's what I've learned...
>> In Washington, D.C., its alright to lie to the American people every
>> day, its alright to send hundreds of American soldiers to their deaths
>> for no good reason, the rats live in the White House and work in the
>> Oval Office, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland
>> And people in North Carolina mostly don't seem to care.
