Articles of interest in Erie Times News, Erie Lead and other Websites -- Part I

June 8th 2011

Friends I have not send out e-mail message to you since March 24 and 25.

There is nothing wrong with e-mail as a broadcast and communication medium, but Facebook (FB) provides a platform for a more user-friendly interactive multi-media exchange. In this context I urge you to take a look at it, register in FB (you only need a valid ...Continue Reading

Remember the Republicans usually do a better job than us during the midterms. Their voters tend to be older and more white, a more typical profile of the ...Continue Reading

They get rid of abortion rights and gay rights, leave Climate Change to God, repeal Health Care Reform, do not allow Gays in the military, expose ...Continue Reading
