    Men's Health (Email) ^ | 9-22-04 | Pam Brinar
    A few months ago, several Freepers were discussing the possibility of contacting Men's Health with complaints about Rall's cartoon.

You'll be happy to know that, as of the November 2004 issue, our new recurring cartoon, "Man Overboard" by David Sipress, will occupy that space. Yours in good health and lower stress, The Editors "

    I have a phone interview with Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida next Wednesday in regards to a position at their law library. I'm not familiar with the Jacksonville area, but a quick search at shows the town has a high crime rate, but a reasonable cost of living. I also know very little about FCSL other than it's a second tier freestanding institution. Do any Freepers in the Jacksonville area have any information about FCSL (rumors, reputation, etc.), and any information about Jacksonville that someone planning on moving there might find interesting? Thanks.

    I recently erased Kazaa from my computer, due to the massive amounts of Spyware I found when I installed Spybot S&D. I've heard several Freepers recommend Kazaa Lite, and since I'm not technologically proficient, I was wondering if someone who is familiar with both programs could tell me if there are any noticeable differences between the two. Thanks!
