     if Roe v. Wade gets overturned, then abortion will and things return to the status quo ante (i.e., abortion's legal or not state-by-state), then, abortion rates will "soar" in the "liberal" states because they'll still be legal there and, importantly, all those moms and dads from Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, etc., who have those nasty, creepy, "W" stickers in the back windows of their BMW SUV's, will be sending their little sorority-girl daughters to NY and MASS for "Spring Break" to take care of that "little issue."  Oh, they'll stay at the Waldorf (it gives a Jr. League discount -- by the way, I've nothing against the Jr. League per se, it does some good works, just some of the Eva Brauns who populate it) and see "The Lion King" and do some shopping, too -- in that awful, awful, librul NYC . . .

    •  The rich one will all be going to blue states. (4.00)
      The poor ones will be staying home and dying from botched alley abortions.  I hate abortion, but I also hate the injustices that occur as the result of rich women who can get a safe one while poor ones cannot.

      •  Exactly. (4.00)

         Nothing to add to what you wrote.

         As for mine, above (and most of mine), it's written between emails, phone calls, memos, etc., that's why it (and so many of mine) are notoriously rambling and have horrible punctuation and sentences that take hair-pin turns and (if I may flatter myself) look as if Wm F. Burroughs and James Joyce's unnatural love child decided to write political screeds...

        •  It's funny that you should write what you did (none)
          I was admiring the style you used in your prose.  You write very lucidly, and I always find your comments full of good ideas.

          •  Good Lord how you can make (4.00)

             a person's head swell.  Thanks mightily.  I'll try and continue to make the complementary words you've assigned to me fit my missives' content and style, and, I'm sure, too often fall short.

             Kind regards -
