This really makes me wonder who writes spam messages…

I received this wonderful piece of literature in my inbox this morning, with the subject of “Video: Medicare: The $60 Billion Fraud”

Cuba's leaders lay out details for layoffs Home buying up in week, but down 40 percent in year I am afraid of this man Aylesbury, said Paul Harley. We sat in the deserted dining room. I had contributed my account of the evenings happenings, Dr. Rolleston had made his report, and Inspector Aylesbury was now examining the servants in the library. Harley and I had obtained his official permission to withdraw, and the physician was visiting Madame de Staemer, who lay in a state of utter prostration. I mean that he will presently make some tragic blunder. Good God, Knox, to think that this man had sought my aid, and that I stood by idly whilst he walked out to his death. I shall never forgive myself. He banged the table with his fist. Even now that these unknown fiends have achieved their object, I am helpless, helpless. There was not a wisp of smoke to guide me, Knox, and one man cannot search a county. As well ask where the shot came from, Knox. Out amongst all those trees, with a house that might have been built for a sounding-board, who could presume to say where either came from? Harry held up his hand to show that they were ready, having before he did so chosen a stone round which to wind the lariats. The other boat was then launched. Sam and Ben took their places astern and began to paddle against the stream. As they were in the back-water below the ledge of rock they were able to keep her stationary while Jerry took his place and got out his paddle. When all were ready, they paddled her out from the back-water. As soon as the current caught her she flew past the cliff like an arrow, although the three men were now paddling at the top of their speed. Harry and the chief pulled in the rope hand over hand, while Hunting Dog and Tom went a short way down the rocks. The check of the bow had caused the stern to swerve out, and when they again checked her she was several lengths below them with her head inclined to shore. More and more strain was put on the ropes, until they were as taut as iron bars. Avec sa bravoure, son genie militaire et politique, et ses cinquante ans, il netait encore, a louverture de la revolution, quun brillant aventurier.Cependant il avait conserve le feu et la hardiesse de la jeunesse. Des quune guerre ou une revolution souvrait, il faisait des plans, les adressait a tous les partis, pret a agir pour tous, pourvu quil put agir. Il setait ainsi habitue a ne faire aucun cas de la nature dune cause; mais quoique trop depourvu de conviction, il etait genereux, sensible, et capable dattachement, sinon pour les principes, du moins pour les personnes. Cependant avec son esprit si gracieux, si prompt, si vaste, son courage tour a tour calme ou impetueux, il etait admirable pour servir, mais incapable de dominer. Il navait ni la dignite dune conviction profonde, ni la fierte dune volonte despotique, et il ne pouvait commander qua des soldats.
