David, I noticed that you didn't put your name on the members map, I was just looking to find out how close you were to the tornado that ripped through TUSCALOOSA, Alabama. Did you suffer any from that tornado?

Then I realized I went right by your fair city when I was escaping Hurricane Katrina. I was going to friends in Tupelo.  At the time I was living in Pass Christian.

"I am not sure they exist, but if they do: are they right? These definitions say they aren't. If people think it's honorable to lie, cheat, and steal, this doesn't redefine "honorable," but only shows their lack of it."
