I just found these pictures of President Bush touring Louisiana on Netscape and thought you'd enjoy them but can't post them. Hope the links work. What would you do for your boss?

I've seen those and I just chuckled. Apparently the guy pays no attetion to public service messages. "No line is safe to touch ever" is repeated up here in Maine on a regular basis.
During the 1998 ice storm up here, Gore came up to survey the damage and pretended to help clean up for a photo op, he grabbed a line off someones front yard until he was told to smarten up and drop it

Just what kind of intelligence would you expect from these people? Put it to you this way, if that line was hot they would be overdue for the Darwin Award.
