  Have you offered to pay Franz Inc to provide you with this document?
  Have you in fact done _anything_ to motivate anyone to do what you think
  is a good idea?  You only demand, and offer nothing in return, not even
  the hope of not hearing more of your stupid whining.

  You mistake me for caring where you go when you leave c.l.l alone.  All I
  suggest is that you go over to comp.lang.scheme, which I do not read,
  where you will have much more "success" with your tail-call trolling, but
  then I expect that you will bother them with numerous things you "want"
  after you get what you say you want here.

  Norway is now run by a priest from the fundamentalist Christian People's
  Party, the fifth largest party representing one eighth of the electorate.
  Carrying a Swiss Army pocket knife in Oslo, Norway, is a criminal offense.
