I like Australian football and I respect the game but things are a bit different here. The few Australians that play in the U.S. are either place kickers or punters. Both would get knocked around like rag dolls if they decided to try to tackle anybody here. It's a completely different game.

There's nothing that they can find that will tell what happened. If the aircraft flew 7 hours after it lost contact with ground than the cockpit voice recorders are useless as they would only have the last two hours of the flight. The flight data recorders would only show the plane going down where it was found. We all abhor a mystery but finding the plane will not remedy the situation.

Clearly this person registered as a Repub (which is a public record) and they want you to spread the word. The Repubs need recruits in NJ. I live in Virginia where you don't have to declare a party. They try to figure out who their friends are by sending out letters purporting to be a "survey". They have a bar coded serial number on them. It has questions that are the usual drivel such as "Do you believe in socialized medicine?" I just cut out the barcode and send back the post paid envelope with "FUCK YOU" written with a sharpie.

What the world *really* needs is a good Automatic Bicycle Sharpener.
