    Hi all,

    I think we'll hear shortly about how the Iranian nuclear program poses a grave threat to the world, (to be fair the Iranians have a long history of pissing on their neighbors) as well as the "war...

    IMHO it would have been nice for Prison Planet to include numbers - a "spike" is a sensational word - but cancer clusters are common (with and without environmental causes).

    Seen similar "signs" attributed to hotels in Thailand in the past - but for Indians, Africans, and Arabs. I think few (if any) are real - most larger businesses won't lose out on potential customers....

    This is about overbilling - just like the government - they'd like to collect a little extra each month then refund it later.

    The way this really pays off is that most utility companies have...

    Perhaps a farm (if taxes won't destroy you)?

    IMHO - the current problem is not when to sell, rather what could be bought...
