    We must be neighbours. I get the low down on them from the staff at the salon which shares the same building. Sound like a bunch of wingnuts. Although the people who I see going in look suprisingly normal.

    DND, Harper gov't trolling Wikipedia over fighter jets?

    But we were in Afghanistan more than a year before the Iraq War started so how could it be a trade off?
