I've got a problem here, Bob. Unless that t-shirted chipmunk whose
mug adorns your web page is a GenXer who's aged *very* badly, you
look like an older cuss [and, If you are what remains of the Robert
Whitaker who edited "The New Right Papers", you *would* be an old
guy]. Am I supposed to take your claim about "living under it all
our lives" at *all* seriously? How do we explain the existence of those
"Colored Only" drinking fountains and washrooms at the bus station?
Nixon's bombing of Cambodia (which was not, I think, Politically
Correct)? And, on a more contemporary note, how do you explain all
those different kinds of folks [mixed by race, national origin, class,
sexual orientation] living up and down the block from me?

If you're going to be at all credible as a spokesweasel for the White
Power Rangers, I think you'll need to appear just a teensy bit less
braindead - While Brian "I'm not Kurt" Smith shows every evidence of
also being afflicted by the swelling and itching of painful ignoroidal
tissues, at least he reads a bit less like a PERL script sitting on
top of an autoresponder. It would be a shame to plummet from your once
exalted position in academia [whatever *that* was] at such a precipitous
rate that you're replaced by Brian Smith. This kind of idiocy, combined
with that "no one gets a science Ph.D. without an IQ of 120" howler
is pinning the CRANK-o-meter even more than usual.

Just a thought....

The arts are the field on which we place our own dreams, thoughts, and desires
alongside those of others, so that solitudes can meet, to their joy sometimes,
or to their surprise, and sometimes to their disgust.(R. Hughes) Gregory Taylor
