precisionist terminology <grin>

Hey Claire, all in good fun I should like to offer a correction for you. The proper term to use for the gaggle of cut-throats pretending they run the show in Washington these days is not "Bushies". One should always call a thing what it is, and they are, of course, "Busheviks". This alludes to their *true* tendencies and agenda in a nicely historical way, and from what I can tell irritates the heck out of them. As has been pointed out by a better man than I (in the sense of being more widely published... <sniff>), republicans are USED to being called or alluded to as fascists, but casting them in the role of communists is both accurate, enlightening, and strikes past many of their defences.  B)

I stand corrected. And humbled. So, Hunter. Do I get to quote this on the blog?

In for a penny, in for a pound. My grandma always told me when I skinned my knees or something "Now, quit your cryin'. A little boy that was meant to be hanged is not going to bleed to death." This was I think supposed to be reassuring. I'd ask you to testify as a character witness at my sedition trial, but somehow I don't think my lawyer(s) would consider that much help in the defence. <twinkle>

Oops - Sorry, Claire, that is to say "Yes, go ahead".
