  - oh dear. Can't someone tell him to stop, for goodness sake he looks so silly.  Evergreen Emerald   Nov-18-07 02:18 PM   #1

        - But they did distance themselves in statement after statement. So why not call instead?  ClarkUSA   Nov-18-07 06:49 PM   #48 
        - honestly Clark that makes no sense.  Evergreen Emerald   Nov-18-07 07:05 PM   #50
