72. I spell judgement the way my British mother taught me how to spell it,
Edited on Sun Aug-17-08 07:18 PM by Progs Rock
thank you very much. You and Daniel Webster and the spelling bullies need learn something about the politics of prescriptive versus descriptive linguistics/grammar.

I never said that they are violating the First Amendment. Don't try to twist my intent or put words into my mouth. I may be well within my rights as a shop owner to show someone the door if I don't agree with or approve of something he or she says or asks, but that act makes me a hypocrite if I firmly adhere to and espouse the concept of free speech.

I have a low tolerance for people acting like jerks. Would Thich Nhat Hanh react the same way you do, making a cheap attempt to denigrate my intelligence?
