9/17    Anyone have plans to buy the Star Wars DVDs?
        \_ What's the point? Hasn't everyone already seen the trilogy
           ad naseum for the past 25 years already? Is it really worth
           your time and money to see an addition 10 seconds of modified

9/18    Yet another goofy Kerry pic - what is wrong with this guy?
                \- Dont be an ignoramus ... if you watch somebody for 5min
                   and have a camera that can shoot continuous, you will
                   get lot of mouth open, eyes half closed, hand in weird
                   position pictures. what takes talent is taking good
                   pictures ... it's the law of thermodynamics for photo-
                   graphy. your brain has been classified as: small. --psb

9/18    Feeling tired? Can't get along w/ you co-workers? If you

           or hungover. At least two or three times a year. It is probably
