Almost a non-incident Tom Send a noteboard - 24/05/2011 08:51:59 PM
A woman who was mildly upset at white children in a black church is a very minor incident (though I do remember that there was such an incident).
Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius

Ummaka qinnassa nīk!

Don't you think that, you know, too many people have read it already? - 23/05/2011 09:55:52 PM 1777 Views
Does that disqualify it? - 24/05/2011 01:49:54 PM 1730 Views
I don't know, if a lot of people want to have this book in a Book Club, I have no objections. - 24/05/2011 07:01:38 PM 1723 Views

I don't think I've ever met anyone who doesn't like this book. *NM* - 23/05/2011 09:37:52 AM 908 Views
So it survives being taught in school? - 23/05/2011 09:39:18 AM 1726 Views

Let me ask the politically incorrect questions, since no one else has. - 24/05/2011 03:14:50 AM 1955 Views
Hmm - 24/05/2011 10:22:50 AM 1822 Views
I think that's a fair point. - 24/05/2011 07:00:04 PM 1829 Views
Calpurnia is a stereotype too. - 24/05/2011 11:54:26 PM 1763 Views
The difference, at least in my recollection, is that Calpurnia is well-educated. - 25/05/2011 08:09:58 PM 1706 Views
