Rick: First of all, thanks for lumping me in with Carol Rainey. I realize that males would prefer their women to keep their mouths shut and follow the program set in stone. Or, else suffer the consequences. I have even encountered other women who feel a strong need to reenforce the program. They really believe what they are doing. I usually put it down to a basic fear of male retribution. I imagine this is the dynamics within a Mormon household where there is more more than one wife. Best to keep one's head down and don't challenge the master. BTW, I haven't been reading the e-mails so I didn't know there was a hue and cry to toss me off the List. My reason for sending this e-mail to you directly if Errol has bent to pressure for a couple of people. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
