maybe if you had been present at the draft, it would have gone earlier. *ahem*

OH, YEAH, RIGHT. I *forgot* you had to be present at the draft to pick. Oh wait. . .YOU WERE ABSENT TOO.

(although your draft board was quite comely.)

Man comes wriggling, howling with pain and terror into the chilly, indifferent world, and all too soon he goes trembling-like-a-leaf and howling, bawling, out. No trace of him remains, and no heaven snatches the electrical impulses of his brain -- what you all have left is fantasy drafts?

Red Baroness -- ODB before Tupac or Biggie? That is apaling, and this is coming from someone who mostly abhors rap music. With that kind of decision you shoud just hitch your aids wagon (or is it train, nevermind) to Eazy E and call it a day.

Missing Bobby Darin (the coolest cat who ever lived) is rather hard to explain. Missing Michael Collins is harder to explain, but I guess you all went to public school.

No, wait . . . .

That's an interesting concept of "censorship" you've got there.
