Hey Lucky-

First of all, I always find your postings of interest.

Secondly, we are living in difficult times which are changing our abilities to survive as puppeteers. There already have been discussions on how one might deal with these difficulties. But we also have to ask how did it come to pass?

Whoa there, Alan.  I did not mean to incite you or suggest we (you, I or 
anyone else) ignore this.  I just asked the question because it seemed to me 
that the majority of the discussion lately has been about politics.  I was 
not criticizing or complaining.  Just asking.  I realize the situation that 
we as a nation are in.  In fact I received the following email from my 
sister just yesterday concerning the businesses that are closing.

*note:  I am sorry this is in bold type.  I do know how to change it so that 
it isn't.  It is not intentional.

Forwarded email:
It seems there are lots of stores that are closing due to the "recession" 
and the fact that people are not shopping. If you have any "gift cards" from 
these stores, make sure you use them, or you will lose them!

2008
