a lot of goofy stuff going on in my brain for anyone interested in

You have given some really good references on aspartame. Has New Mexico
banned it yet?
Some people also have allergic reactions to peanuts... Studies have
Aspartame is safe for the majority of people.
Besides, the point is moot now. Splenda tastes better...
