To all of my friends, I do not usually forward messages, But this is from my friend Pearlas Sandborn and she really is an attorney.
If she says that this will work – It will work. After all, What have you got to lose?
Dear Friends; Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is sharing his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent later.
Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.
When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (If you are a Microsoft Windows user) For a two weeks time period. For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00 For every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, You will be paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a check.
I thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on. Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, receive a check for $24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can affoard this, Bill gates is the man.
My brother’s girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When i went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game. She showed me her check. It was for the sum of $4,324.44 and was stamped "Paid in full".

- Councilman David Briley is concerned about the amount of tax increment funding. He is not concerned that public financing IS actually being used, just the amount. But don’t worry, Mayor Bill has covered his fears by showing we originally were going to finance more than double this amount. Thanks mayor, it feels so much better when you only screw us for half the amount of money. Briley is also interested in running for mayor and having wireless access for everyone (okay, the last one is pretty cool for a geek like me, despite its $300,000 price tag, paid for by "public financing").
- Councilman Jamie Isabel is concerned about the lack of minority participation in the project. As long as we are throwing some scratch at the minorities, it is okay to screw all of Nashville, right Jamie? As an aside, Jamie Isabel’s other pet cause is stopping police from using Tasers, which was prompted by the death of Patrick Lee, whose autopsy shows that his aggitated state and drug usage were the primary factors in his death, not the Taser.
- Michael Craddock is against using tax incentive funding or money from the sales of the other land to build the stadium. You go boy!
It seems strange to me that Nashville owns some prime land on the Cumberland River that it wishes to piss away in another bad deal. But, at least Mayor Bill can say he was not screwed over as badly as the Coliseum deal with Bud Adams, right?

It appears Farrakhan was right. He contended that bombs were planted in levees in predominently black areas of New Orleans, stating "They found two types of explosives used by the military" and "A member of the Army Corps of Engineers saw burn marks on the concrete". There are now pictures of the bomb, proving he was right.
Many will not believe this and the confusion is understandable. It seems the military was using one of the new b345 bombs, which are disguised as barges. The picture below shows one of these insidious bombs.
Now, the right wing conspiracists are claiming that Farrakhan is mad. They cite the fact that Lakeview and Old Metarie, predominently white areas, were also destroyed. This is just typical of those fascists, trying to diffuse a legitimate story with facts. Damn them!!! They need to "stop making sense" and allow us to continue on with our own realities. BAAAAA!!!
