Last night's Drudge report made me reminiscent of those days...
What is the likelihood that the following is actually true? 3%?
BTW, I'm presently writing up thoughts about BillG's house. Will post

In the words of Al Pacino's "Scent of a Woman" character, Hoo hah.
I'd love to be off [X-files], but because of my greed I have to give
them an extra two years... I assumed there was no way it would last. It
wasn't that interesting and I thought it was silly. Obviously I was
wrong... [the plots] don't make sense. There are lots of holes.
