Some Radical Truth

          I once had a discussion with a religious man via e-mail.  Here it is:
                 Chris in orange                                      Travis in light blue

Sorry it took a while to get back to you.  I believe that if you and I
sat down to discuss these things, we would be up all night and then we
probably wouldn't finish.  I appreciate your zeal.  Again, I believe
that Congress needs 'impeaching', not President Bush for handing over
their power to the Executive.  They are the ones who are anointing a
king.  Term limits?  We already have them, they are voted in or out by
us.  Guess who then gets the blame?  We the people who continue to send
these folks back.  We need impeaching for not doing our duty. 

Anyway, feel free to use my note (realizing it isn't edited or that
great) in its entirety if you want somewhere.  I am not posting any of
these sorts of  things on my web site, it seems too big anyway.  Thanks

Travis Kidd, Jr., M.D.
