    insult you because of the use of the word "niggardly" -- I was making a point of how incendiary language/ words can be.  You know that, of course -- but this is a discussion about language --  and I am not offended - it's a valid word - and i am certainly not accusing you of being a racist - just pointing out words matter.

    Speaking of being offended, in an international relations class, a professor talked about a "little old lady" in Texas who was working against certain textbooks.  I talked to him after class -- why is it always "little old ladies."  never "little old men."  -- I'm in my 60s, so I got a twinge.  difficult, thorny subject.

    Conservatives say "Silent Spring" is a dangerous book! Why do Conservatives Hate Birds?

      but thanks for the clarification, so I understand you :-)

      You can kill a flock of sheep with witchcraft, provided you also feed them arsenic.
