Re: [casi] OT - Fast Food to a Fast Grave.

Hi Bert,

Listen, you can draw all the conclusions you want.  That's your business
and your decision.

I, however, am on a humanitarian mission of my own -- and that is to
save some of the folks at C.A.S.I.  Sure, there are several wacko
lefties out there that think they have a serious axe to grind with Uncle
Sam, but there are those, too, who are just young and mentally bogged
down in idealism.  This is a normal phase, like puberty, and unlike the
wackos, the prognosis for these young folks is quite good.  Above all
else, my greatest concern is for that of the young Americans out there.

You do what you have to do.  If you want to waste your time in an email
orgy where you all bellow: "That dirty rotten Bush!", "Damn that
Rumsfeld!", "Why that lying S.O.B. Blair!", "Why that mass murdering
USA!!!", "Poor Uday and Qusay!", etc..., etc..., etc....  then be my guest.

I could always use a good laugh.
