The explosion kind of reminded me of the time I put my Melitta in a closed
box and then left the room.  When I returned I saw mounds of smoke and the
box was scorced.

Glen,
This stuff is hilarious....
As for being OT, I don't agree. I brewed myself a nice cup of Turkish
coffee, sat back and enjoyed it to the hilt....Somehow, the music added to
the enjoyment of the coffee...
Thanks, and keep 'em comin'
Ciao,
Angelo

Pam,
HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is the method for 
changing fonts, character properties and embedding graphics. It is the 
method used for creating web pages.  Since your web browser knows how 
to handle the HTML it simply manuevers the text appropriately. 
The problem with text is that in the digest  HTML is converted to plain 
text.  So a typical line will have the HTML edit featrues included. 
Here is what your HTML post looks like in the digest form:

I'll have to agree with Derek. Seems as though the two hundred year

I got a kick out of it too - kinda makes you woder!
Frankly I do believe the Salvation Army does some good work.  I
suppose the ACLU does too.
As a taxpayer, and also a believer, I don't fret much when funds are
given to non-faith based organizations, nor do you hear me cheer when
the faith-based org gets some money.  Seems to me there are lots of
both: faith based orgs and non faith-based orgs.  Same with people -
faith based and non faith based.  And of course those who would go
quietly about their lives making a huge impact on others, and we never
hear of them...
Hang in there folks.  Who knows, even Karl Rove probably has a sweet
Aunt out there who quietly does good helping others, and not counting
the pennies on either side of the aisle...
And to all of you, regardless of creed or stance - hope your coffee rocks!

32) From: Sandy Andina
Well, I won't say anything else about this, but on EVERY listserv  
I've been on, the only objections to political or religious posts as  
being impermissibly off-topic (as opposed to responses disagreeing  
with the viewpoints contained therein) seem to have come from  
conservatives reacting to liberal posts and Evangelicals reacting to  
posts expressing distinctly non-Christian religious perceptions.    
This has been the case across the board, whether the lists involve  
pen collecting, music, stereo equipment, guitar collecting or  
coffee.  I have no problem with discourse on both sides, but it's  
disingenuous to cry "off-topic" only for posts with which one  
disagrees. Why this phenomenon seems to be limited to one side of the  
ideological continuum is something I will not even try to address-- 
and which would tread dangerously close to being an ad hominem attack  
that'd be truly off-topic on any list except an hypothetical one  
devoted to insults (and which I'd hope is nonexistent).
Let's just agree to disagree about politics and get back to  
celebrating the noble bean and brew.  There's always backchannel  
anyway. To the extent I offended anyone here with my own post  
responding to Ginny's, I apologize.

I have experienced the same thing, Sandy. But... why is it that some 
people feel their view is SO correct that they can cross the line of 
tact and diplomacy to toss out acerbic OT comments that they know will 
foster divisive rhetoric?
Rush is a big, fat idiot and Michael Moore is a big, fat pea brain. And 
that's the truth!
My spellchecker thinks your last name should be angina, BTW. Are you

Please allow me to disabuse you of that notion: although the  
sentiments in the post that began this whole fracas agree with mine,  
I still object to them and feel they are out of place. I have places  
I can, and do, go to discuss politics, but there should be safe  
havens from the cares of the outside world. This place should be one  
of them. Please, let us discuss coffee and its wondrous virtues, and  
leave the bitterness for other places and times.
