    Everyone needs to calm down. Assume, for a start, that people are, in the main, behaving fairly and honestly. Too many, unfortunately, post too quickly without considering how others may view their...

    Well, I shan't laugh too much, : ). This is much like the F-22 fighter being nicknamed the Raptor. It was a "hip" new usage that they probably thought appealed to a younger audience (well, younger...

    Oops, I didn't mean to post this since I decided I didn't really have anything substantive to add. However, since it's posted let me edit this to say . . .

    I suppose the problem is that we are...

    I guess I can disregard a Frenchman who tells me how we Americans should fix our racial problems . . .

    Of course, as you alluded, the question is, what does this survey measure, racial tolerance...

    I don't know what's true or not about this issue. I expect I must believe the "experts," but their warnings are undercut by the hypocrisy of their supporters in Hollywood and at Windsor. It doesn't...

    Poll: My favorite of Shakespeare's are his history...

    My favorite of Shakespeare's are his history plays, Richard III being the prime example. Henry IV, however, is a little difficult because I don't "get" the comedy of Falstaff.

    Poll: Like many, I love Shakespeare too, but I find his...

    Like many, I love Shakespeare too, but I find his comedies (Midsummer Nights excepted) hard to take. It's not that he's a bad writer of comedy, but that the idea of what is comic has changed so much...

    It has been pointed out that it is more environmentally sound to keep your old high emissions clunker than it is to buy a new, efficient car due to the impacts of manufacturing a new product,...

    And the environmental impacts of battery construction and eventual disposal.

    I think, however, this was why paleolithic humans were so mobile. When few fruits or tubers could be found, or when prey animals became depleted, humans picked up their few belongings and found new...

    You may be right, but don't assume that people who think differently than you do so because they're stupid.

    I had always assumed that for hunter-gatherers, the men hunted animals and the women gathered fruit, nuts and roots, including tubers, like potatoes.

    Just so. I and my sons got their height from my mother's side; great big Germans (my uncles were 6'3" and 6'4"). She's K1a4a1h.

    Joey, I support your last comment. In San Diego it's raining and we're crazy bad drivers, so it's best to stay home and enjoy that tree (my non-German fraction grovels in shame at the cultural...

    The last two comments remind me, some how, of the Twilight Zone.

    And really, a biturbo, what are you thinking (drinking, smoking) ?

    I find it hard to accept Clark's findings and, while I don't want to be one of those people who refuse to accept findings they don't like, I want to wait for some confirmation. There have been too...

    My wife has corrected me (when has that ever happened before?). Tonight, instead of A Christmas Story, we watch Christmas in Connecticutt. This is really one of the best; a great turn by Barbara...

    If paganism means eating and drinking to excess surrounded by family and friends, then I'm all in! But, despite being a non-believer, I say Merry Christmas to all!

    Now that is well said. It was the static nature of society (of technological progress) that allowed the land-owning class to rule for so long. This may be hard to see from today's perspective because...

    Family fortunes have their ups and down, but the persistence of wealth can be amazing. Early members of my male-line family (that is, I believe they are though I haven't been able to prove it) were...

    We're now working through A Tree Grows in Brooklyn; it has a lovely Christmas scene. The young girl that stars here is also in my favorite version of Jane Eyre, the one with Orson Welles. \

    The...

    I don't so much dislike the witty dialogue in The Lion In Winter as that it's too stagey . . . no one is that on point all the time. The brilliance of it, its unnaturalness, takes me out of moment....

    Last night my wife and I watched another Christmas movie, The Lion In Winter. Not a feel good movie, but it occurs during Christmas and it is full of great power and great acting (Peter O'Toole and...

    Yes, Good News has Peter Awful in it, but that doesn't ruin it. The plot is awful (kind of like an Astaire-Rogers movie), but the musical numbers are great, especially a number called, I think, Pass...

    So, the more free an individual is to be whatever they want to be, the more their personality, "on average," aligns with their sex. I suppose at this point someone (me) should mention Jordan...
