WHY do you always have to type in italics?

Ever since I was a kid in private schools taught by nuns I was taught to write cursive. If I got to school before 7:00AM in the morning, I had to go to mass for 1/2 hour. Of course my mother was never late. The nuns did not allow me print like a normal kid. My cursive writing had to be slanted or I had to do over. Since I use both hands efficiently, when I chose to write left handed, the nun always came over and made me hold my wrist the correct way so I wouldn't go to the abyss upon death.

After many years of researching and writing in "italics", what I found out was, when I provide a reference to a third party's text, I do not make the reference text in italics also. I do this so it is easier to read the more important text for the clientele that read my research instead of vice-versa.

Please ask me to answer another question. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Arkansas leans to the right. Right?

I am thankful to the State of Mississippi for allowing our great State to not be the last in everything on earth.

Not being political here, but the dope from Hope will be remembered graciously compared to the Einstein from Illinois we have now.

When Bill's mother died, she was buried in Hope while he was President. About 1 mile from my land, there is a city airport currently housing about 10,000 Fema trailers due to the Katrina hurricane. They pay our small 10K populated city $50K per month for rent to store the trailers which cannot be used in flood zones. During WWII, an influential Arkansas senator by the name of Spencer, had the largest runway in Arkansas built here. War planes use to fly in an out and they tested bombs. Anyways, to make a long story short, Air Force One landed here and the secret service escorted Bill and his mother to the cemetary in Limos. One thing about Bill not too many people knew, was he had a photographic memory. When Bill was a Governor of our great backwards state, my father did business with him. About 10 years later, my father passed Bill walking at the Little Rock airport, and Bill called him by his first name. :shock: :shock: :shock:

We did a little business with Hillary when she was at the Rose Law Firm and I was in the S&L business. Unfortunately, she went to the White House and the S&L went into receivership.

The Rose law firm is very influential.

Rose Law Firm is headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas. It is the oldest law firm west of the Mississippi River[3] and the third oldest in the United States.[4]

It traces its origin to November 1, 1820, sixteen years before Arkansas statehood, when Robert Crittenden, born 1797, and Chester Ashley, born 1791, entered into an agreement for a "Partnership in the Practice of Law." The firm's name changed over the years as partners were added. "Rose" was added to the firm's name in 1865 when Uriah Milton Rose joined the firm. A statue of Rose stands in Statuary Hall in the United States Capitol.
