Listen, there is International Securities and Exchange Protection for people like me... Beware because it does not matter what country you are in... Enforcement can have you brought to court by court order in any country... Signing all these small print written contracts with Nasa Space Administrati see more... on could land a bunch of people and agencies in an International Justice Center with a threat for fines and jailtime... Be careful, there are already a significant amount of billionaires and millionaires in jail for white collar crime... Consequently, these securities fraud people have already done 60% percent of their time incarcerant... Make sure you know what you are doing with me... Even the hospitals and the city managers desks do not matter... Just because they sign the torture list with me and Nasa does not mean that you won't be isolated or broght to justice for securities fraud.... Mr. Edward D. Drew III/Universal Boss!!! lord2@india.com Elizabeth Jacobs Named Deputy Director Of SEC's Office Of International Affairs FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2003-166 Washington, D.C., Nov. 26, 2003 - The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced the appointment of Elizabeth Jacobs as Deputy Director of the Commission's Office of International Affairs.

It's very hard finding what WPFW presents, day and night ---- day after day. What is given by lesser stations easily turns off one who's looking for quality radio. WPFW should never ever have to beg for funding, their roots go deep, where else would one go to get the essence of us other than W see more... PFW. neothechian

It is the only jazz station in Washington, but just barely. There are at least four latin music stations here and none play jazz. why do we need latino music? Love Caribbeana, zydeco, Blues and classic jazz. Music is the reason that I donate.
