A GREAT BIG "THANK YOU" TO EVERYONE WHO REPLIED. All responses have
been compiled into one document (w/o names) and will be passed on to
others in my group that wanted to argue or have a heavy discussion about
this issue. They can read the replies and come to their own
I have what I need and thanks to ALL.
P.S. I am forwarding the responses on to others so they can see that
what I said about this list is true. You guys (and girls) are great
when help is needed and this is an awesome list.
