================: WED.SEP,970903 :================= -5| Westergaard Investment Conference Waldorf Astoria .
He may be Andy Rooney, Lois Rukiser, and P.T. Barnum all rolled into one....but he is not Big Brother RatMan.
www.techstocks.com/~wsapi/investor/s-16571/reply-193 : RatMan.....Is a folk hero from up Montana way. His story is the story of the common man who must battle the evil forces of government to protect his God-given civil rights......Here is the story, you must decide what it means.

Security Crime Control Conference '
