    I caught it.  Must have gone to the bathroom, but re-read the transcript.  I'm tempted to delete, BUT, I won't -- not because I think I'm right, but because I should have to take my medicine wrt to my inaccuracy.

    all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

      update. That's almost as simple as adding a comment below, and should keep a few of the putdowns a bit milder.

      At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)
