Ken, and all,
It's oxymoronic, perhaps to write this to the list, but let's find 
another forum for this type of discussion. I actually followed up and 
emailed the representatives listed in the first posting.  And I'll join 
another list ("geeks-on-oregon-policy", pdx-goop-list?). But, as 
important as this topic is, I'd like to continue to follow "rules" 
pertinent to the list and keep the postings on topic: perl mongering.
