Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

THe switches you seek are no longer made and there is no replacement for either of them. I had mine bypassed when Bob restored mine last year. He is thinking about having a few more made, but holding your breath waiting for them is not advised.
