<5c e-mail snipped>


(sorry, frames)  click on currently circulating in the left-hand frame.  The top
one is 5c e-mail.

Also, try


and do a search for bill 602P.  Write a one-page essay on why "no match" was
returned, due Tuesday.  (Hint:
.  What does this data represent?).  Cool, I've never downloaded anything at
10.6k/sec before.  What's the deal?  Is it server speed, or traffic?  By the
way, this may be a temporary document, but you can find the current version by
nosing around in www.senate.gov.
