Details, darnit, we need details. We don't all have tubes.

I don't have no tubes, neither, GB, had that litigation thingie years ago. Sorry, Watchful, missed it. What did they say?

-- Inconceivable Old Git (anon@spamproblems.com), March 05, 1999.

11:45pm Senator Bennett states: "The more informed people become, the more freightened they become." This followed by a discussion of panic with Lou Marcoccio of Gartner Group.

Which network was this on? Iam in Calif and may be able to catch it

C-SPAN. Couple of threads already on this topic.

-- Steve Hartsman (hartsman@ticon.net), March 06, 1999.

Midnight EST; Hearing will be repeated on CSPAN at 1:40am. Did not take notes. Revelations included serious concerns about interruptions in foreign sources of oil ( 50% of US requirements), insulin (70% of US requirements ) and materials for pharmaceuticals ( 80% of US requirements). Also revealed that Russia just requested $17mil from the US to help fix their nuclear reactors. I do hope that the full load of facts will appear in the media.

It was also mentioned that 40% of the U.S.AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS ARE IMPORTED!
