Can't say we'd see eye to eye on everything political, but then that's not
really pertinent to the list.  I think we do agree on language, software
filters, and the first amendment.  I know I used the word "damned" in a
posting yesterday.  Mostly I try to adhere to the language criterion I had
to follow in grammar school when speaking or writing for public consumption,
but that's a matter of politeness.  Software filters make law out of
personal taste.  I think that's something people should negotiate among

A mind is a terrible thing to use.
