RE: Radar Backup Alarm System

Apologies for the bogus attachment on my mail. Whenever I hit "reply" to a

legislation to allow farmers to make more noise?

luck to RASINC or whatever the company's name is, for coming up with the

  Now we'll just have to start spreading the word to governments here and
there. This is the type of thing that should be legislated. Lord knows
these trucks and heavy vehicles make enough noise even without the backup
beepers; they just make a bad situation worse.

BTW, your winmail.dat... it's B A C K   A G A I N... <g>
