My guess is that neither of their employers would dream of allowing it to
happen.

I keep up with the news much more than the average American does, and I never
heard that Snarl Rogue got divorced.

This will be his second divorce.

Can't vouch for the source being reliable, but it is consistent with
something I read a while ago.

weg9: Well, I have to say, the most delicious bread I've eaten is a
seeded rye that comes from a bakery chain called, "Boulangerie" in the San
Francisco Bay area.....When that stuff is fresh from their oven, if is to
die for. Unfortunately, I have never had a pastrami sandwich on it. Perhaps
in another life......
