Moving the list

I could not have expressed my sentiments better than Bill did! Thank 
you, John, for keeping this list going.

I joined Jim's group on Yahoo right away because I didn't want to lose 
contact with this great group of people and it looked like the listserv 
set up had tanked for good. I'm glad it didn't since it has some nice 
advantages to it that Yahoo didn't offer - and especially not having to 
wade through the ads!

It's great to know now how to access the archives that I did not know 
existed. I hope everyone who's been part of this rushtalk group will 
stay here. It's been overwhelming to me to have to wade through 
duplicate e-mails with my time constraints.

Linda, I've tried several times to subscribe to repub-l and my 
subscription never goes through (and I know how to do listserv 
subscriptions). From comments made here, it sounds like there's a lot of 
"noise" there that I can do without, so maybe it's for the best.

Even though I mainly lurk, it's great to hear from all of you who post
