    Where is Jesse Jackson? I thought he was going to Iraq to negotiate with the people holding hostages. We might be seeing Paul Johnson and the others being re-united with their families had he done so. Jesse, where are you?

It was served in a "typhoon" fifth for a dollar a bottle and you could sit and drink it all night long and carry on an "intelligent" conversation. Once you stood up, you were in deep "doo-doo".I personally "walked" off the roof of a bar looking for a taxi after ...
