In case anyone cares the mail lady bought me a letter from Vermont today. The letter was
not sealed and the flap was hanging open! Inside was a credit card sized thing. It has my
photo, my finger print and a pretty cool hologram on the reverse.

Congratulations Paul. Sorry to hear about the car and the deer. Hope you are alright.

Wondering if Vermont has lost the September greencard requests?

Congratulations ! My missus told me that after so much grief, money and effort it is at
least the coolest card she had ever seen & she is from the land of the smart commode and
plasti-cards for everything. It is a cool card, indeed. It is a pity to give it up and get
a passport that is just blah in comparison. Another reason why one ought to stay an alien.
Too bad about the deer.

I agree...It actually is the coolest card I ever saw apart from my Dan Marino Rookie.

Do not hit a deer at 60 mph in a Ford escort. It makes an awful mess.

I got so excited for you that I ran right out and ran over 5 squirrels and 3 neighborhood
children and totaled my car. Thank you very much! Congrats. I hope they spelled your name
wrong, er, right.

My other half, who is from Minnesota wants to know:- How many points did it have, and are
you going to mount it.

Not quite sure what that all means but congrats on the card anyway.

Hey, congratulations to you and your Grinchess.

Deer and Nissan Sentras don't mix well either. Larry's animal was shaken, but not stirred
(at 3:30 a.m. on a deserted highway), but our little black car endured $2,000 in damage.
Lar was hoping he'd see the animal lying on the side of the road when he came back from
work in the daylight, but no such luck. The thing and Larry were the ONLY things on the
road and it FOLLOWED him across the center dividing line, aiming for him. Sheesh. Must
have thought the little car was a mate or something..... We're looking forward to seeing
Lar's greencard (supposedly 2 years down the line, via Louisville). I'll be wearing my
sunglasses, btw. I swear I can see your teeth glowing from all that smilin'.

To celebrate I hit a deer tonight on the way home and totalled my car!

My mother (who lived in Wisconsin at the time) hit a deer once. A guy in a pickup truck
stopped to help. He asked her what she planned to do with the deer. The guy was in
complete shock when she said "leave it there". He just couldn't believe that a middle aged
Asian woman driving a caddy wouldn't just strap it on her roof and take it home. He was
elated when she told him that he could keep it.

Maybe that was because your mother know that the deer meat is not any good when a deer has
been killed via ala automobile. Of course he could have wanted the head and rack.

The deer meat not being any good was told to me by the game warden that we contacted on
the radio after I creamed a deer with my hummer. We volunteered to bring it back to the
game warden shack but they said to just pull it off the road into the woods since the meat
was not any good, something about stink or shit sacks. Anyway that's my deer story and I
am sticking with it. You all can go back to what ever it was you were doing.

It also depends on the time of the year. When I creamed my deer it was autumn in central
NY State but still reasonably warm out. I called my cousin's husband (an avid deer-hunter)
to ask if I should haul the thing over to his place for cleaning, and he said that when
the weather is too warm, the bacteria and buggies the deer carry with them are more
virulent and the meat can be bad.

Do I have to? *sigh*

"It's a green card.... Mr. Ginch" Congratulation on getting you card.

It's been a while since I took out a magnifying glass and examined the holograms closely,
but I seem to recall that the faces of all of the presidents appear on the backside. Does
you card stop with former president Clinton, or does your card also include President
Bush? Since he's only been in office for a short while, I doubt he's there, but I was just
curious if he was.

I believe most of your relevant information is encoded in the magnetic strip on the back,
including your image that was on your ADIT photos (I believe). Wouldn't it be nice if they
came up with some sort of government ATM style machine where you could slide in your card
and automatically apply to remove your conditions or apply for citizenship (in the future
when the appropriate time comes). Of course, they would need to figure out a way to input
some cash into the machine to pay filing fees.

Who knows, maybe that is their long range goal... take your card to the INS office, have
them read the magnetic strip on the back, print out the completed form on their printer,
have you sign it and pay the fee. That would be nice.

Sorry to hear about your car. I almost hit a deer on my motorcycle back when I was in my
first year or two of college. I was riding from Ephraim to Provo early in the AM with my
trombone strapped onto the sissybar. I was going for a private lesson from one of the
instructors at BYU. All of a sudden, there was a heard of deer crossing the 2 lane highway
in front of me. It was winter and there was snow on the sides of the road, and I did not
want to try to slam on the breaks and I don't think I had enough time to stop anyway, so I
aimed for a space between two of the deer and zoomed through them. I was VERY lucky.

When I was a freshman, my roommate at the time and I were driving from Ephraim to Lake
Tahoe for a weekend of skiing at Heavenly Valley. We were traveling on the middle route
across Nevada. They don't have fences for most of that route, and cattle are able to cross
the 2-lane highway. Well, it was about midnight, and all of a sudden a huge cow was
standing right in front of us on the road.

My roommate (it was his car and he was driving) tried to miss it, but we hit it near its
back end. It spun the cow down my side of the car. It killed the cow and the car. There
was only one small panel on his car that was not dented, and the cow's horn actually put a
bullet-sized hole in the opera window near the back seat on my side of the car.

When the Sheriff arrived, he told us we were the third car to hit a cow that night. No, we
did not eat the cow, even thought we had to pay for it.

I gave it 4.3 points for its graceful flight through the air, I considered mounting it but
then thought if the wife caught me I may be in a bit of trouble!

Now, this is an example of something you said that is somewhat original and for which I
would mention the source if I repeated it in the newsgroup.

I read a report once, on the future of the ADIT system (I think, but it *was*
immigration), and it was ALL high tech electronic, instant tracking, verification of
records, digital photos and fingerprints available everywhere. Mike
