I think I received what should be the ultimate low in the age of spam. A Republican congressman named Bob Barr is sending out unsolicited e-mail -- one of which I got myself -- asking for monetary contributions for his war on "left-wing liberals". In a country (USA) which demands ethical reform in government but re-elects the same repeat offenders into office, I'm really surprised this hasn't happened to me more than once from politicians from both major parties and some minor parties. ~Danny~
