ezs note:  I'm not really a hawkish type, but if you have goods to buy, you might want to consider Target.  They're really a very progressive company, with reasonable prices.  Plus, you'll have a chance to piss off the American 'Family' Association!

ezs note:  Uh, yeah.  You were 'blindsided'.  Here's a little news flash for ya, Curt.  When you joined Major League baseball, and are a sportscaster after that, um, people tend to watch what you say.  Stick to diggin' ditches, Curt.  It's much easier.

ezs note:  Yes, you can help!  Especially if you are going to Uganda on business or pleasure, you can take a few moments to e-write a polite yet firm letter to your Ambassador.  In the US, she is Ambassador Oliver Wonekha.  Her address is oliver.wonekha@mofa.go.ug.  For other countries, please contact www.google.com to find them.  Thanks!
