Well, I anticipate a barrage of nasty replies, but this message is too
offensive to pass in silence. Russell was very right but too kind. And it is
about a simple principle that treating any whole group of people with
contempt and crude othering is a form of hate.
It is important to say that this is not even remotely ok: it is bigoted, cruel,
hateful, divisive, the kind of ideology that destroys.
And the mockery and self-congratulatory sniping this will no doubt evoke
will not make it anything else.

Whats the big huff about froggies being so offensive a term? I hear
language more coarse than that every day and so do you.
Froggies isn't a word I typically use unless I preface it with an
adjective or phrase such as cowardly or pure bred imbecilic. I more
commonly describe my fellow humans of Franco ancestry as "cheese
eating peace monkeys."
Kate, we rejects from the Stevens list have to stick together. I'll come to
your aid even if you may not deserve it. I owe you that much. Your
beautiful precious post awhile back confusing pounds and lbs made me
laugh and giggle all day. What innocence! I showed it to everybody in our
office. We all loved it. Somehow it got me thinking about Shakesperez A
Comedy of Errors and also the old Laurel and Hardy (or was it Abbot and
Costello?) routine Who's on First. I consider it the most brilliant
entertaining prose I've read in quite some time ranking right up there with
Mr. Blessinger's fantasy of being conjoined at the throat to Peter
Well I suppose I'll receed back into the world of lurkers...Talk at you
good people in 6 months or so,
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels."
For the sake of my brothers and friends,
I will say, "Peace be within you."
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your prosperity.
Psalm 122:6-9 A Song of Ascents of David
