That's nice. Would you mind telling us what a "cc" is? If it means carbon copy, that's exactly the kind of thing they told me they won't accept.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

I am a great admirer of Richard Painter. He was the chief White House ethics attorney under George W. Bush. Now he is running, as a Democrat, for the Senate in Minnesota. I became aware of him via his frequent appearances on the panel of Bill Maher's 'Real Time.' He is a very outspoken critic of Don...

I didn't ask and I don't want to guess and end up steering anyone wrong. I would suggest calling American Citizen Services at the embassy and ask.

The number is: 02 205 4000

Americans - an update on a visit to the embassy in Bangkok

Re: Florida High School Shooting and Gun Control

ending your own life after doing something like this. I certainly would. People who do these things, and it's not just in schools, are not exactly thinking the way a normal person would. If they even consider the consequences at all, apparently that doesn't deter them. Maybe that "15 minutes o...

Re: Eggs and Cholesterol? Forget it!

The same happened with salt. I remember when the recommendation was to avoid salt. While no one is advocating over-doing it with salt, now they say using salt sensibly is not a health hazard.

Re: Florida High School Shooting and Gun Control

When will the dam break? With the kind of people currently in office, until something happens to their kids, I doubt that the dam will ever break. Even one of their own congress people was shot in the head, and was fortunate enough to survive, and still nothing was done. Only more useless talk and ...
