    Too thin? Rite cell is thick, rigid and tough..pop it in and you're done. Is there any other foundation that is thick enough?

    Re: My (alternative) theory of the Bush Miracle

    LOL, Ace, I doubt I have that much influence. Perhaps sales of rite cell will go UP from new customers that want to try a partial sheet. You can't do it with any old foundation ya know :)
