Victorians Were Some Of The First Subjects Of Candid Photography

And speaking of lawsuits why is it lawyers scrounge the iNet/Web when they're working up divorce filings? Yep some idiot decided that he/she just had to tell others about the stuff they were doing. On the Web as in real life, all's fair in love and war!
