That Which Is Not A Hotlist
A bunch of information and links that may or may not be useful to you. They're
potentially useful to me, so I figure they may well be of use to
y'all, too. (Really, they're mostly links to places with lots of links, but
my logic is, why repeat what's already been done?)

it was an amicable seperation), I need this
dictionary a lot more
than when she lived with us.

info . (And here's the less useful
official Amtrak site.) For those who rely on cars, there's a WWW
registry, for those who might stretch the definition of the speed limit a bit.

on in the House. Not that it does , because Congressmen can
up and change anything they damn well please in the Record, willy nilly,
accuracy and the truth be damned.
banned books. Only way I know of to fight censorship on a grass
roots level... (Yes, I am prone to random political rants. Why do you ask?)
