Bless you J.K. and all those whom helped you.This insidious disease must be stopped and you have just helped a great deal.I wonder how much all those"holier than thou" fundlementalists have donated?Until they have been as generous as you,they should have a giant gobstopper placed in their mouths and not allowed to remove the thing until they do as much to help their fellow man as you have.
