I thought so, too, but the earlier post indicated that the
United States, Liberia, and Myanmar were the only holdouts AGAINST

We may be tetering on the brink of a fight with this
conversation, it always generates people saying that one or the other
is best, but really the best one is the one you can understand, HI!
