	OK, I have asked this question to many different people.  Most give
me the brush off when I ask it (even professors at universities), if
you can not answer, maybe you can direct me to a book or something??  
	Here is my scenario?  as I understand it, the speed of a electron in
a near perfect conductor is over half the speed of light?  if you
presented a charge in two opposite directions, would the speed of
charge A be faster then the speed of light, if the reference was
charge B?  and since the charge is a election that has mass at rest,
would that not disprove that mass could be accelerated passed the
speed of light?

	just trying to understand???
