STOP! Do not read this page now. Select your back button or another link in MMS Online. Come back here when you can't take any more news about You Know What In Chicago. I've jotted down some totally unrelated thoughts and observations that might provide a few moments of mental relief before you get back to business. When you need a break, sample a few to get your brain going again. Save some for later. You can get through this entire issue. Good luck!

People with the strongest opinions often have the greatest incompetence.

Stuff too much gold in your pockets and your pants will fall down.
