E-M:/ Re: Weird Dem-GOP Trash Trip



David,
 
Based on a press release from the House Republican Caucus, found at: 
 
http://www.gophouse.com/Members/DEROCHE/Releases/Releases/1_22_04_trade_mission.htm
 
the trip to Ontario is much more than about Toronto trash.  The purpose is to "meet early this year with key leaders in Canada and discuss trade and other topics related to economic development."
 
Actually, the press release does not mention Toronto trash at all.
 
And turning trash into coal is just a ridiculous idea.  Sounds like the energy crisis has just been solved!  But we need to get everyone to generate more trash so we can have enough coal to fire the power plants.  Maybe we can have trash-powered cars!  How about a trash-powered trip to the moon?  Forget Iraq....maybe we should invade Canada so we can get more of their trash to turn into coal!  Halliburton, are you interested?
 
Sorry, I digress.
