119. Kind of hard to ignore it, when it's 9 out of 10 threads on the board.
Edited on Wed Nov-19-08 10:17 AM by 1corona4u
:eyes: besides, someone has to keep you all in check.

PS. I use the word obsession literally, not figuratively. For your edification;


noun 1. the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.
2. the idea, image, desire, feeling, etc., itself.
3. the state of being obsessed.
4. the act of obsessing.

I'd say the thoughts expressed on this board in regards to the Clinton's are 'persistent'. Shall I define that for you too?
