Thanks to both of you.

Straggler on Gun Control
This is a damn nice piece of writing.

Message #: Message 1517

I hear from people like Faith and ICANT and I count myself fortunate to be free from fear in this way.

For real. Nice one Straggler.

Heartily seconded.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Re: Straggler on Gun Control
Blimey! I'm honoured.

Many thanks to those that nominated (it's been a while since I received a POTM nomination) and also to all those that "cheered".

Yah, well, the least you could do is learn to spell.

And stop calling me Blimey!

You Yanks and your quirky ways. Guns. Phobia of the letter U. Cold fizzy beer. Etc.

Surely you know this is an exclamation of surprise derived from "God blind me".

AZ in my head writes:

Don't call me Shirley

And so on.....

Thanks again.

Re: Straggler on Gun Control
Phobia of the letter U

I always have had a problem putting a u in words that we in the US don't believe should have it.

My grandmother was Canadian and she was the first person to teach me how to spell. Earlier today I fixed colour because spell check highlighted it. I also tend to use Theatre too.

Now when you add in my fathers Puerto Rican side, you can see why I have issues with the English language. Among other things.
