    Of course Cicero had the accused executed without trial setting the stage for the likes of Thomas Jefferson whose every action belied his writing. A question

      Of course Cicero had the accused executed without trial setting the stage for
      the likes of Thomas Jefferson whose every action belied his writing. A
      question which I have grapples with concerns the posthumous repuation of people like
      H.L. Mencken who are "revealed" to be anti-semetic on the basis of slurs in
      his diary which ignores and overrides all the actions of this man's life while
      godawful hypocrites like Jefferson are revered for his writing while his
      actions, not only on slavery, are pretty much ignored or rationalizedaway(A
      favorite was the feminist retake on Jefferson and Sally Hemmings speculating that
      based on the person he was that it must have been a loving one). I've wandered
      afar and I don't wish to interfer or interupt but this seem a good place to
      raise this issue if only to unload it on someone else. JWC

        Hello Melk.
        Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm afraid I'm not in
        to this political-historical stuff; I really am a harmless crazed
        cultural revolutionary; and I see you as a Doubting Thomas kind of a
        chap - which is a perfectly ok thing to be in my book.
        Louise.

            am merely a lurker and certainly not in the same class as you Eduard, and so
            many others. That particular rant was because I was tired and somewhat
            thoughtless. Best as always Melk

              Eduard , we have every type of gaddamned church you could think of.
              Down the street they have this shoddy, cement block church. Beside it
              they have built a 90 foot, structural steel tower. There is some
              kind of a talisman hanging from the top of it. I would go in and ask
              what it is but I am afraid I would be killed and eaten.
              A few blocks the other way is the Church of Rock. Supposidly they
              preform christian rock there. Nobody is ever there. Rock on!. Then
              there is brother joeseph`s church. You can go there and get married
              if he is awake. He marries anything to anything. Cross species
              marriage is a big seller. Then there is sister anne, psychic reader
              and fortune teller. She is about ten blocks east. She has been there
              for years, has a big crystal ball out in front. The big evangelicals
              like to advertise on the tube. Thank --- for the remote.
              Nooism, I doubt you could draw a croud. It is a tough market here.
