    Thanks for this article Wade, haven't seen the Village Voice since
    leaving Canada.

    The story I referred to is here:,4273,4116941,00.html

    the precise quote was, "As US Attorney-General, Ashcroft - from a
    Christian fundamentalist background which forbade alcohol and even
    dancing -" which is not the same as saying "HE" has these views. (but
    this illustrates one way a rumour spreads)
