WOW! Thanks for the link. This should be required reading for every American, oh what the heck, everyone in the WORLD!

BTW, it sounds like she spent alot of time here! ;-)

I noticed her theory about why everyone doesn't GI was similar to one posted here recently.

"One explanation is that relatively few people have well developed synthetic reasoning skills or systems analysis skills. These are exactly the skills that are needed in order to make assessments. Copious amounts of logic and commonsense are similarly needed in order to comprehend the nature and scope of the impacts associated with all aspects of the Y2K problem. All of these skills and capacities are needed in understanding the connectivity and interdependency aspects of Y2K. Persons who quickly "recognize connections" may be among the first to comprehend the potential severity of the impacts."

Chock FULL of concrete steps which should be taken at every level to avoid potential catastrophy.

Blunt honest advice to Public Officials who choose to LIE through their teeth.

Mr. President,

Please hire Ms. Gordon immediately, oh and uh give her a really big budget.

Thank you,
