It's just occurred to me that things famously Straussian seem to have a recurrent azure theme i.e., blue jeans and The Blue Danube. There's a work of wry art in this somewhere. edweird

If I ever fall off the wagon, I'm going to make the event commemorate both of you old grouches. Scotch *and* Bourbon. And then, to commemorate myself... Everclear. edweird

Sexual Orientation
Consider: 1) It *is* health-related. It is a medically recognized, and curable, dysfunction. 2) Generally, anything that helps break with the old life and give a fresh start in a new and better life improves the chances for rehabilitation. 3) There certainly is an administrative problem of where to slot the transexuals--neither men's nor women's prison is appropriate. The operation will solve that difficulty. 4) Transexuals are very likely to be abused by the other prisoners, particularly if they've already

Your duping again, Fury: I got identical messages with slighly different kludge lines, as noted.

Er, make that want us to see I don't particularly care what you think of me, either. <Shrug> You do know, of course, that there are others besides "the likes of" me who read this echo. Wouldn't you care that they, at least, see for themselves? And I showed that it was not just my opinion by quoting the posts to you and by you. Moreover, it was I--and not you--who invited others to

You bastard.

Black Athena?
1) It doesn't make any more sense to say that ancient Egypt was "Black" than it does to say that the United States is "Black." Their black population was concentrated in Upper Egypt. 2) Greece was in contact with several other civilizations besides Egypt. The Minoan civilization (Crete) was much more influential on the Mycenaean Greeks than Egypt. A comparison of religion, alphabet, social structure, etc. shows radical differences between Greece and Egypt.

Sexual Orientation
That "argument" was settled a long, long time ago--evolution did indeed occur. Facts. This was a British humor schtick long before them. As entertainers, you mean? For one thing, it's an easy way to get laughs. So did the Babylonians, Turkish women had harem pants, etc., etc. I don't know of any culture where women wore codpieces, however. Eh? Sexual preference and sexual orientation are pretty synonymous terms. Some confusion would be a natural reaction, particularly if you've never knowingly

And turning into a textbook example of projection. Too bad. That fruitcake was a welcome change of pace from the usual Protestant fundy.
