True...discrimination *is* a tricky subject. I was
looking at it from a one-sided point of view, going by
the strangeness of the media and not really
considering the other reasons...in a way I was
discriminating on the subject. *grin* you've
enlightened a person today.

rounding a fable here and there, and building castles
in the air for which earth offered no worthy foundations."
