And why is Bush the only one who doesn't yuck it up with Hugo Chavez. I miss President Bush (and I know he was completely wrong about Pootie Putin....). What is wrong with Carter and Obama?

Place name: Clark's Mountain

Description: An outstanding cone shaped mountain, the highest elevation in the county, in the northwest part of Benton Township. The rugged top of protruding granite can be reached only by climbing afoot or horseback. A spring flows near the top, which is encircled by a drive which is fourteen miles long. The place was considered for the location of the Sam A. Baker Park, but a more scenic spot was chosen. This mountain, like Clark's Creek (q.v.), was named for a pioneer, Francis Clark. (Wayland, Wallis, Wilkinson, R. Davis, Parker)

over abortion. Always wonder where the "choice" is involved for the people of the womb. I have one of those little guys and he is a person. I cannot wait to see him and he has as much of a right to life as I do or any other extra-wombal person does.

God bless the people of the womb and the Right to Life cause.
