    thought for the day

    Working backwards, I have no take on the latest
    letter. Abbott's shouldered so many hits lately, I've
    quit trying to predict stock movement based on any
    single event. As a long, I shouldn't ever be doing this
    anyway, but it's human nature to seek answers when
    unlikely events come to pass, especially ones excessively
    detrimental to the pocketbook.

    I harp on politics
    because I'm on the long train with Abbott, and I truely

    3)Good point on the remaining primaries.
    If Bush wins the nomination, no doubt the media
    byline reads: 'The Republican party, captured by
    conservatives unwilling to tolerate inclusion, faces uphill
    battle against Gore.'
    To that Bush should respond
    forcefully; 'If you want the kind of regulation and
    government meddling McCain wants, DON"T vote for me.' Reagan
    won because he wasn't afraid to go on offense. Bush's
    "compassionate conservatism" and poke at Robert Bork's
    "Slouching Towards Gomorrah", were two steps in the wrong
