    If this doesnt scare you, nothing will.I sent this to many friends and family and they are all scared and disgusted.

      Kathy,

      I share your feelings of disquiet. And disgust.

      Hillary surely has a reservation in Hell at the
      same table as the group Mr. Yardley offered

      needed or no?
