That's too bad the project has been stopped by the powers that be.  Would
you be willing to share it in its current form? I think I probably asked you
this the first time round and you said no, but just in case that's changed,
I'd be interested in reading it. :-)

got your last meal filled up with pesticide
hamburger chain third world infanticide
got robot car your job will disappear
it's called the politics of a brand new year
some say that's progress i say that's cruel
