Samantha, please explain to me WHAT it takes to qualify as the epitome of evil in your mind?? I would really like to know! I think a person need only commit one vicious murder or rape to enter epitome of evil status.

It sure seems like it has a point to me, please explain why my seeing the point is an error. I also wonder why calling American foreign policy evil presumably has a point as you say it or imply it in nearly ever line you write, this in spite of the fact that they haven't crashed a civilian airliner into a civilian skyscraper recently.

Samantha, were you a lawyer, even the ACLU would find you too liberal!! I think of you as a caring, but very naive person. I respect that you want to go to the wall for civil rights, but see you as misguided.
