we used to say how to become a millionaire in montana---------------start with two million.

now we get a billionaire. i hope he has two billion if he still wants to keep that designation.

perhaps he hasnt yet realized, butte is too hard to get to, and is also a polluted cesspool from the mining days.

Oh please. Have you ever heard of a MT postman going nuts? All you MT guys do is fish and drink beer and put off fixing houses. Like anyone worries about mail except the Cabela's catalogue. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
