To Darin & List, Do you realise that you got me into trouble, Darin? Someone complained, in a personal e-mail, about my swearing. My ?mistake had been to quote from an earlier e-mail, from yourself, about "....B...S..." - ("Return to Sender!"). But, I'm not expecting you to suffer great pangs of conscience. 'Return to Sender', as you probably know, is an Elvis Presley song. He went to an early grave, very likely for having severely mistreated his own body, because of poor life-style. If you over-indulge in substantial solid "foods" that Western imperialism fills your plate with, then, by all means, go to town on McDonald's, KFC & other junk foods. Then lighting up a cig or two, with your coffee? The price to pay, though, is high: possibly, a mortal stroke or heart attack. Rather than digging your grave with a knife & fork, how about some "liberal" questioning of values, which won't take you on the road to ruin, nor sections of the Iraqi population? You really do amaze me, Darin: "Ladies and Gentlemen" - a mark of respect!!! Or is it merely symptoms of 'Blue Rubber Bleb (Bleb?) Nevis Syndrome' - no known cure? Good advice not to believe all you read. But how do I know something is garbage - because you say so? Am I not allowed to draw my own conclusions? What is right, or wrong, for Iraqis, for Americans (North, South & Central) - incl. Darin - or for others in the world, is a very important question. To confront it requires seriousness, clarity plus some understanding of the situation. Do we possess such qualities, and are we prepared to use them? Or are we much too busy clogging up our cerebral arteries with fatty substances, of very little real nourishment, from Fast Food? Politics aside, you advocate helping hungry/homeless persons, instead of wasting time with trivial pursuits. Are you speaking from first-hand experience, or is it just superficial theorising?
