    born to a Jewish mathematician from a Boston slum, and an ex-Catholic civil rights activist who converted, you know, I was taught lessons about respect for people of all colors and creeds that I'm not sure everyone else learned.

    But now that my peers are adults, there's no way I can reach out and suggest changes in their outlook. Hell, I couldn't even as a child, so 'al ahat kama v'kama - all the more so would it be difficult now! To say nothing of people of the older generations, who regardless of my personal feelings about, I owe some deference. Not only do they tend to be more set in their ways, there's no vaguely respectful way to bring it up in discussion.

    Respect your past. Don't live it. -- Philip Zimbardo
