    Re: Mary < **The Revised Mason-Dixon Line**

    Posted by Mary on 8/12/03

    Hey FF, or do you prefer ff:

    Been out and about. Hanging out with what I believe to be yankees. New York is not a southern state by any of our present mason-dixon definitions,
    is it?

    Tried to find the book at amazon.com. Looks like it is not in print.

    As far as Ridge goes, looks to me like you and johncodie have him under control. He over-simplifies, and neglects some of the legal issues, but he
    is largely on the right track. Remember, I'm one of the bad guys here. I'm surprised none of you (y'inz?) dear readers have commented on that Fung
    article I previously referred you to in that ACGIH publication. It is more important than you may realize. You should check it out.

    Best Regards,

    Mary
