Re: KLBC: maw'

ok..I wanted to say that..but I know what you mean about it being dangerous!
I wasn't sure if it would come out as "I cause you to be crazy" of "I cause

I just wanted to say that I think the job that you do on this list is a very
honorable one and that it is obvious that you do a lot of work to help other
people.  ThankYou!
