As much as you all hate Google groups, I'm forced to use them at
Up until this morning, no new posts showed up in my browser (at work
or at home) since Jun 25.
I was able to see newer posts in my Thunderbird news reader, but not
through Google. Strange thing was, I was able to *post* via Google
groups, but not read anything new for the past few days.
BTW...that was the reason I posted twice about the Portable Storm Door
email I received. The first time I posted it (from work) I never saw
it show up, so I thought I screwed up and decided to post it again.
When I got home and used Thunderbird, both of my posts were there.
I don't know if the "Google groups outage" that I experienced is
related to what you have been seeing, but I wouldn't be surprised.
That bad! I've only been posting for a few years, so you may well be

*for action there!* (eg putting down "dissent"), and Mr. O. taking all
that even further, seems like the writing is on the wall, as they say.
Long time being planned, maybe even since that anti-Goldwater ad with
the little girl (I watched the ad, live, way back then) and the flower
and then the BOOM: think-tanks, etc. What do you think they were being
*paid* to do, other than plan for eventual takeover.

(you try it) and got a lot of stuff about the approved-by-Moyers shown-only-once
