Ah, lenny, pithy as ever. You're so full of pith that I can't find the
fruit; your contribution consists of an insult and a sarcastic
throwaway: "vision of the future with an ethnocentric guarantee". Is
that supposed to mean something?

As I've suggested to you before, if all you have to offer are trivial
and meaningless insults, you can use email and spare usenet the bandwidth.

On the other hand, if you can show how anything I've written can be
construed as cultural/racial "proselytizing", I'd like to see it. But
remember, you must include the text you are responding to. No

Disclaimer claims dat de claims claimed in dis are de claims of meself,
me, and me alone, so sue us god. I won't tell Bill & Dave if you won't.
