I have a feeling one or two of my recent comments (to which, by the way, no
one seems to have responded) might have made the present acrimony more bitter
than it would have otherwise been.
Needless to say, I have nothing against Nancy Gish or any other contributor
to these frequently inane exchanges. But, having spent my
formative years in a semi-totalitarian state (Poland of the 1940s and
I have a serious problem with people who seem to be always ready to provide
a definitive reading of, or ruling on, any and all subjects that might come
up, and coach their pronouncements in apodictic terms. Even
Aristotle would hesitate sometimes, I am sure, to cut off all further
debate on the strength of one paragraph from him.
Best wishes to all,
