wow, I can't believe how quickly 17 years have passed. I remember how quiet it was in subdivisions that were newer than 17 years and how LOUD it was it the older parts of town.

That Snopes website is great for debunking those e-mails (FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK!!! NOW!!!) that people send with those controversial quotes from famous people, (BE SURE TO FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK!!!!!!!!) ridiculous "newly discovered illness" stories, (DID YOU FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK YET??!!!) and the requests to forward them to everybody in your address book...
