Here we go again - get over it Sean honey child. I know from past chats that Carter is a sort of hero for you - Sorry I can never see that and I should have known which direction the "education" you were about to impart was headed. Good talking with you again - it has been a while. Take care - really over and out this time! :)

Lorna, Carter isn't a hero of mine. He was a fair president (not great and certainly not as bad as the Republicans make him out to be). Ted Kennedy was my hero. Lorna? Are you okay? I thought I heard you getting sick. Ha-ha.

Surely you mean not what you say honey child!!!! Somehow Ted Kennedy just doesn't seem to fit the bill. But, I could be wrong. Not sick yet, but I do feel my vision getting a bit blurred!! :)
