        @Stuff Jones LOL that open letter was terrible. The author could save us a lot of time by just wanking while looking in the mirror instead.

        @m17xr2b I'm not following what you're saying in your 12:16 post.

        @Stuff Jones I mean that it was masturbatory. The length of the text and the style of the writing (paternalistic, mannered, over-intallectualized) suggested to me that the author was more interested in indulging himself than in persuading anyone of anything.

        High schools have stopped teaching civics the way they used to. A lot of folks don’t know the basics of how our government works. (or doesn’t sometimes). Wish I had the answer to all of this.

        Teach the smarter children Greek and Latin. A few, at least, will be called out to by the philosophical virtues and by the character of a Socrates. I might yet be spared having to instruct the *entire* seminar of graduate students in long-established and fairly straightforward distinctions (fairness vs justice, acceptance vs tolerance, &c.).

      You can delete my profile and membership. The way you react to a simple dissenting opinion, offered without ill intent, really surprises me to the extent that I wonder if there is something wrong with you. Who but a sycophant would want to subscribe to this kind of behaviour? Thanks for all the fish etc.

        I love the gluten craze. It has had the side effect of helping people who really need to be gluten free. Both my father and brother have Celiac disease. Gluten literally kills them slowly over time. It's hereditary so I could even develop it anytime. Celiac isn't as uncommon as you'd think.

        Whereas things-with-moving-parts are usually the least subject to denial that things sound different (it's hard to deny!) where blind tests for transducers come in handy is "Which do you like the best without knowing the label or the price."

        I support old-fashioned, toweling diapers (nappies, as we Brits call them). But then they tell me that the detergent and fuel used in washing them is just as harmful. The answer is: put baby outside to crap in the street.

    Ears validate the measurements, not the other way. Well, sometimes the measurements keep us honest.
