Thought I'd start a topic that has something to do with the Island. Anybody ever fish the west end or round island? It looks fishy but I've never had any luck.

Which page of the bill refers to all of that? Can't seem to find it anywhere.

This thread has gotten creepy! I'm a gun owner and a hunter, and there's no way I'll ever join the N.R.A. . In my opinion if we ever lose the right to have guns, which I don't believe we will, we'll h ...

Familyman,

If you don't like Keynesian economics I assume you are a "free market" Freidman fan. Might want to check out Naomi Klien's The Shock Doctrine to see how well that system works. We could ...

I'd buy one too Mike. Maybe you could make it with a binder type spine so you could print and add more flowers as you find them.

Yeah Doug, here's a "thought". Hold McCain up to anything like the same kind of scrutiny as you are the dems and see how you like him. I have and I don't.

Yep. John, you're a republican. I know the dept. of ed. and the E.P.A. are broken, but I shudder to think how much worse things would be without them. I'd say you better start lobbying hard in your pa ...

If this clover escaped from pastures I wonder if deer eat it. They're going to need something to eat with the beech trees in trouble.

I think paving the roads is a terrible idea and would change the island forever. Pretty soon it would feel just like the mainland and lose all its charm. The pace would get faster and I'd hate to see ...
