he's starting to turn around, he did get his pistol permit last year and was pretty pissed off at all the crap he had to go through. I'm working on him though, he'll be reading unintended consequences soon.

These sites only allow translating one word at a time - but do not require download. With some creative thinking, you can might close to a translation - or not. [url]http://www.sunsite.ubc.ca/LatinDictionary/[/url] [url]http://humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/Latin/[/url]
