Kirsten Gum, I miss you.

I can accept Al Trautwig being gone....

It's nice to have Armstrong back, but I was ok when he was gone.

It's not ok that Kirsten is gone.

Kirsten was the Tour de France

But did 5 out of 6 statisticians review this data to ensure that 5 out of 6 dentists recommend Dentyne if you like gum? That's what *I* want to know!!!!

Stacey was an amazing woman who served as a moderator here for quite a while. She was a character who spoke her mind and you always knew where you stood with Stacey. She was not afraid to ruffle feathers but was not cruel or mean spirited.

She lost her battle with leukemia, but she never lost her spirit or her amazing wit, intelligence and sense of humor.

And she had some cool pet rats.
