Oh great. So the new managemnt is going to make major changes to a working operation. Very smart. Sort of like the New Coke. I can hardly wait.

Heh heh. Were you here back when Kook was trying to "help" John Kerry get elected? I'll bet he cost the Democrats about 1,000 votes.
We haven't done tiered licensing in a few days.
