Reading mail

I get
alot of mail. There's the usual mail I get from the USPS (snail mail) - magazines, journals, books, bills, offers, etc. I get no junk mail since I am on a junk mail list made law by the U.S. Supreme court known as "Prohibitory orders against sender" which was originally designed to keep pornographic or other offense material from being sent to you in the mail. Now it encompasses anything and everything you may find offensive, including junk mail. The Post Office doesn't like it when you shown up with one of these since they derive a majority of their earnings from delivering crap to you door. They will snort and huff, but the law is the law, even if you have to get a government agency to follow it. You can download a copy from the USPS website, or ask me for a copy in MS Word and I'll email you one. I also get alot of electronic mail - email (rabbit mail) - documents, greetings, comments, etc. So far, I get no junk because I don't sign up for stuff using my email, unless I know for sure I won't get magically signed up for crap; or I know that my addy won't get sold to a vender in India who tries to sell me purple sarongs at 50% off. So I come to posting some of the emails I get - don't worry, privacy is respected and vehemently protected. I thought they were interesting....


Hey Walt!
I came across your blog and I like what you have to say. It is so eclectic! Keep it up!

Thanks Jen!


You are such a ******* *** (expletive deleted) because you are trying to push your religion on people. Yer (his spelling, not mine) a typical rightwing Christian who always sits in judgement of people!!! Im willing to bet you suck as a scientist too and now it keeps me awake at night knowing you have something to do with nuclear power.

Hi Walter, I just came across your blog "360 Degrees" and liked it very much. I thought i should let you know about my new blog "Slideshows for your website and Blogs" link : My blog basically consists of slideshows which fall in 12 different categories. If you like any of the slideshows, you are welcome to embed it in your own blog.

No prob Anuj! Thanks for letting me know!

I admire the fact that you seem like a very smart guy and a Christian, too and you're not afraid to say what is on your mind. We have too many scared or diverted people it seems who are unwilling to stand by true principals these days.

Thanks JohnC, but I can take no credit, since greater is He who is in me.

Hi Walter, as a nuke physicist, do you think the world will end as a result of nuclear war?

No Hailey. I think it will end how and when God chooses. I'm fine with both and worry about neither.
