    To keep it simple, I'm a semi-retired English prof with two degrees: one in medieval languages and literatures, the other in composition and rhetoric.

    And I am NOT a believer in Grammar Police Thuggology -- too much Chaucer and Shakespeare and Samuel Pepys, I suppose.

    I adore satire, and my favorite is Jonathan Swift. Gullible Travels is okay, but Modest Proposal blows the British brutality to smithereens.

    Oh, not that it matters all that much, but I'm a Texan, family back to Austin's second bunch of imports, family buried all over the state -- and I've got a great-great granddaddy who fought with Marion in the Carolinas -- Mel Gibson should eat his heart out.

    Glad you're here. The longer you stay, the more rhetoric you will be exposed to. By the way, what's your blood type and have you had any social diseases lately?

    And I'm infected with Senile Dementia which is VERY contagious -- but only through direct DNA injections.

    It seems good, thanks.

    I'll catch on -- eventually. Old ladies just move a tad bit slower than you young squirts. :)
