Also see: www.visit.internet2000-plc.com (scroll halfway down the page to see the pertinent info). It gives good, solid reasons why extremist views ala Gary North are wrong. Many will heave a sigh of relief!

I really don't understand this, once you reach a certain point in life you either get wise or you fall in with the rest of the robots out there. Some reach that certain point in infancy, some on their deathbed.

I don't believe in y2k guru's, from what I've seen, heard, and read many of them don't have a clue.

Liken them to politicians if you will, the people who really *know* are on this forum.

I suggest you send her an e-mail. I did.

I have a rather long media repsonse e-mail letter that I send off whenever I feel the need to "respond" to what is being Y2K covered or not covered. If you want a copy to "edit" so you have your own boilerplate newsmedia letter, just send me a request at sacredspaces@yahoo.com.

careful Diane, you keep doin' that stuff you're gonna end up on the same lists as all of us 'religious extremists' and 'gun extremists'...please bring at least two extra decks of playing cards as those of us who get busted first will probably have worn ours out by the time you get there....
