Why bother with the harley when it has a turning angle of 5 degrees? better off with a Ducatti.

Now the question. Does it play Doom III fast enough?
Bush Tax Cuts == Job Killer
June 2001: 132,047,000 employed
June 2003: 129,839,000 employed
2.21 million jobs were LOST after 2 years of Bush Tax Cuts.
