The Police rock. So why did Sting become such a p**sy?

Hahaha. He's still great, just doing different stuff now. I don't like everything he puts out these days, but he's still extremely talented and not afraid to change. I respect that.

I was always a big sting fan, and my girlfriend got me his autobiography for christmas. What I gather is that he never really liked a lot of stuff that the police did, but he needed to suceed, he had a family that was living in near poverty.

He's "Nothing Like the Sun..." album is a favorite of mine.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
