Hey DD where is "College"? I never heard of that school. What did you do DD to serve your community? You have seven children? I see your intellectual abilities limit you to one sentence again. I thought you said you graduated from Purdue University and had a degree and worked as a mining engineer in Mexico? I thought you served in three wars overseas and spoke six languages. You did this while having seven children? Amazing! Where is all that evidence you promised to e-mail me on your great accomplishments? I have been waiting a long time. I thought you were contacting NY. Where is that letter? All mouth, no action. By the way, back then it took a 70% grade to make it into the academy. Sadly they had to lower the standards.

I guess DD has nothing to say or better yet e-mail me.

Give me a number and I'll turn myself in. Then I would get to see who DD is because if you file a complaint you must provide identification. The mail must be really slow from NY. I was just in touch with them and people will now notice that the graphics on the Dundalk page have been fixed. The right hand side of the page no longer contains the same news item repeatedly. DD should I surrender and plead mercy? You do have a way a deflecting from the topic don't you.
