First of all-- no hard feelings meant by me... I guess as a student and
teacher of logic/philosophy for many years, I love a good
('good')argument. I would apologize for my offensive behavior, but
well... I stand by what I said.
Secondly, the article on Ms Byron Lovelace was very interesting. I had
no idea that she was the daughter of Lord Byron. Thanks, David.
And I must agree with Brian when he said that any conversation that
begins with, "Wanna look at my boobies? And will you buy me a beer?"
definitely doesn't sound like a winner. Ack. I wouldn't talk to her
I'll meet you all after the next 'meeting' for a beer (but definitely
not a kamikazee)... --Tanya
