just does not pass the laugh test. I could not take my family to the Dallas
Cowboys football game for $275. The cost to BID was more than $275. I am sure
there is more here than what meets the eye. Time tells all.

and associated business for the past 6 months made a post on my private

Regardless of the all the other issues, getting a group of alpha personalities together to pull this off is a sign of bigger things to come for all of you!
