    I hope that's true, but I distinctly remember teachers and nurses being laid off due to cutbacks in the 80s. I'm worried we'll be headed down that road again.

    And make sure your pension is buried in the back yard not in a bank.

    If you want an explanation regarding cellphones and polling, there is a thread about it already
