Subject: Happiness
Happiness is often a function of how we're loved.

To frolic in the warmth with memories of you,

to know that someday we might meet leaves me in everlasting bliss.

On so beautiful a day,

your silent voice so beautiful,
I never want it to end.

Subject: One word
We may never meet,
But by chance do,
Perhaps we must deny,
A gesture o' eyes..

But let me hear
just one word do
To my swooning heart,
for ere today I die

I can with truth say,
It is so,
That I have loved,
thy faithful ties,

To another so ret,
With devotion to,
Love , beauty and
bonds that tie.

Subject: Re: Fire Alarm
Stop it with these ridiculous threats. The security team know, or have a picture of who pressed the fire alarm and it was not me. I have about as much to do with it as your flat do so please drop the attitude. And could you at least have the nerve to tell me things like this in person rather than pretending i don't exist. I will never visit your flat again, and as far as i am concerned i don't even know you.
Subject: Re:
Where do we go from here. That is an interesting question. I don't really know. The only place we can go from here is to start corresponding privately via our email addresses instead of hanging out in this virtual cafe. That is my contention. What do you think? I agree that the net can be quite addictive.

Subject: Re: Thanks!

Out classed I highly doubt that, And yes A sniper rifle is a better choice. But I'm not a little man that and I've been training how to cripple people since I was around the age of 15 so I think I'd give you a pretty good run for your money But what has really been bothering me is whats your problem
with me and your right I don't know who you are but if you told me maybe we could work something out...

Subject: Re: what a jerk!
Your note was rude and offensive, but, since you took the time to write it, I'll take the time to respond.

I'll be sending a response, but here's a bit of it that so many don't seem to get. The news business is just that, a business. It takes hours to interview prospective employees and hours more to go through resumes. That costs money, time and energy that no one has.

Interns are a logical first step. Every smart employer would want to hire someone they already know can do the job.

I hope we're agreed so far, at least.

That said, now you are trying to find someone who will be willing to take that job and, frankly, not in theory, but in fact, they don't.

I don't blame older journalists for this, I do blame the fact that major media pay so low that they can't afford to work there at an entry-level position.

As I pointed out to another writer, if you aren't using interns as a hiring rung, then it doesn't matter.

Having prospective employees reject job offers -- all too common till recently -- is one of the major reasons employers don't look for overqualified applicants. A 50+-year-old intern with a career's worth of experience in ANY field, is overqualified for any entry level job I've ever seen.

That's not age discrimination, that's reality.

BTW, I'm over 40 as well, so I appreciate the situation.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. At least some people in journalism care enough to do that and, if that's the case, there's always hope for the profession.

> What a scumbag you must be, believing and promoting the notion that discrimination is okay if it's covered up with a PC label. Jeez. I'd hatto work for you. With that kind of attitude you probably won't be working long. If I had a chance, I'd take you down at the first opportunity.

Subject: I see you. I am you.
Hi David,
I saw you in the street yesterday, but I was afraid to speak to you.
I miss you too.
Now I'm so sad : I know I will never see you anymore and I'm
alone thinking of you in my flat.
I try to remember your face, your eyes, your mouth.......
I'm sorry my english is so bad, but I'm just learning in order to write to you, I'm beginner...
With all the love it is possible to imagine, I kiss you.

Hi Jen--doing a real bang up job with the campaign. Just one suggestion though, if you could have taken off the "prefix" from enrich and empower from your signs, that would have really rocked hard! Get it, "Engage Rich Power". Seriously though, it's been really far out and I hope it turns out really groovy! Good luck

i'm leaving this place for some days.
