Just chiming in to say thank you to all the groopers who have filled my
"inbox" over the last couple of days it has been helpful to hear from people
all over the country and world- As a member of the local media it has been
heartwrenching to to sit in the studio 14 hours a day waiting to do
SOMETHING. I think especially here on the west coast we are feeling the
stress of helplessness, frustration and anger. I was thrilled to hear Colin
Powell say we are gonna "Do the Groo" on those who are responceable for this
and other terrorist actions but sad on the other hand because like many in
the Groop the only frays I really enjoy are those drawn by SA. Best wishes
to all - soon we shall laugh and play again,
