and now i'm going to throw in my political 10c worth... i hate to disillusion you americans, but unless you get your news from many many sources, the crap you are fed by your print and tv media is so very biased. you would realise this if you lived anywhere but there. very few of you even seem to realise there is a whole other world out there full of people who may or may not have very differing opinions to yours. in fact, most of you, without cheating, probably couldnt tell me the time difference between new york and alaska, let alone which states are in what time zone. dubya, g not j, is so full of himself... when has he ever been able to string two words together that make sense? its so easy to tell when he is reading a speech that someone else has written for him... it flows... he should never have won the last election, but the bible states (and i include alaska, incredibly republican, in this) pulled him through. unfortunately, what happens in the states has far-reaching and long-term effects on the rest of the world.
