June 14

         This was a wry comment about the judges of the 9th Circuit.  It's 
the most far left crcuit in the US, and its decisions are overturned more 
oflten than those of any other circuit.  It makes lots of dumb or bad 
decisions --- just like those Italian judges who ordered the recall of the 
Cs-137 contaminated wood pellets.

         We have too many regulations here too, Franz.
