I think you have a 'hidden' agenda with this post, but it isn't all
that well hidden. Your only point was that you have a problem with
President Bush, am I right? I thought you were done preaching your
political views in this group and we were getting back to the TELECOM

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Oh, gosh ... you caught me in the act!
I don't hide very well, do I? Actually I was discussing the very
odious telephone tax and used my own feelings about the very odious
and (you fill in this blank) person who occupies the White House at
the present time as a good reason for not paying the tax. I suppose I
could have divorced the two issues, but that would have been quite
illogical wouldn't it? PAT]
