in itself. You can't compare them on the same scale any more than one
can compare weight and length with "benevolence". It's like I was
discussing what kind of music I like, and someone says "Yeah, Bach is
OK, but what about Fettucine Alfredo?" >>

No way, Marinara is much better thatn either! ; P
Re: twas but a reply to *your* comparison of an act of trade to all
otheracts of beauty, and BTW, it seemed you thought it WAS of high value in
itself (which I would have to agree with BTW) and the highest moral value you
knew of..."No value better than the dollar." Either you are backtracking or I
am sorry if I misunderstood.
