    From a public perspective; Ballard and Kramer are higly ambitious media types with litte to no science
    backgrounds. They had become use to a certain standard of living prior to the housing bust. Both High
    maintenance and in continous needs of funds; certain minor leaks in the home became a source of national
    attention they both needed; and an agenda for suing their insurance companies to sustain the levels of income
    they had been able to borrow on raising housing markets. With the housing bust they are continuing a futal
    effort to make mold into gold. Why did you get out of the group issuing a new position paper Sharon? Your
    group spent some time in reviewing each others work. The Ballard 4 millon was being further reduced to 2
    millon. There is on issue! Any incumbant canidate is going to go after some position, "Toyota" gee wonder why
    they have been in the news. Mold in a car dealership? Sheetrock, carpet, and motor oil! Sensationalizm is
    what you have for each meal. It just isn't news. The canidates will be friendly to get your checks, and closer
    to the elections distance themselves from you, luinatics!
