Because I don't like it doesn't fly in my book.

Now *that's* over the top!  Slavery?  Give me a break!

I think I read the same public commentary as you did, David, and I thought
it was almost uniformly opposed to your position.  Since any controversial

suggests to me that the balance of contester opinion is not on your side.

I'm not suggesting that you did anything wrong, just that you *are* wrong on
this one.
