JFTR, I wanted to note the difference between "retarded" and "Downs syndrome." One, as I'm sure you're aware, is not necessarily the other. But I am perhaps taking this too precisely -- it occurs to me that you may have meant "formerly known as mongoloids" as a qualifier for "retarded people." If that is so, then oops! I have no issue. =^] ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; ;Kathleen M. O'Neill ...
