Hey, LIEger, ask Marie if I said anything of the kind to her. Then, after, she tells you that you're wrong on this one, I expect a full and complete apology on this site. Tonight! I've already sent a copy to one of my former students who works in the Justice Department. I also sent a copy to the best attorney at one of the big three law firms on Wall Street who was a student at Harvard Law School when I was a graduate student at Harvard (I was best man in his wedding). Between the two of them, they have informed me that even though this is a 'nameless' website where one is free to go a bit too far from time to time, there are limits and when those limits are violated, a law suit can be in order. They've already begun (on a pro-bono basis) to start proceedings against you (they each have law clerks and associates under them). My guess is they'll be filing a suit in Florida, NY, and NJ at some point by the end of this week or the first of next week. They know enough judges in federal and state courts throughout the east coast (they went to law schools with many of them) to be able to get access to your on-line Topix files in short order. So, a word to the wise: 1) apologize to me publically...now and 2) stop this crap now!

That will not be an acceptable defense in a court of law...or anywhere else for that matter. If you made a mistake, own up to it. It you said something inappropriate and wrong about another person, admit it. Every religion on the planet has those same basic tenets. Cuban Christianity is no different. He goofed up big time...really badly. He must apologize. Ego has '...Thems the rules of the game', in life or even if you're just playing around. There are some mistakes and misstatements that are too far over the edge.

It really is simple. All he has to do is say :'...OM, I am sorry. I was wrong in what I said.' Period. No flowers required. Don't need any music. Just the words that he was wrong and he apologizes. That's it. That's all it will take. I'm betting he can't do it. It just isn't in him. He is NOT capable of EVER admitting that he made a mistake and said something that was wrong. Geez. What kind of human being is not capable of doing that? LIEger, you should be ashamed but that would require a level of decency and humanity that you evidently do not possess.

You have given the final outcome - LOPM's apology "would require a level of decency and humanity that "he" evidently does not possess!" "Pride proceeds a great fall!" CO's Revised Version

That's a good version. How about OM's NRSV:'...Stupidity and ignorance will cause a stumble. Pride causes the fall.' Now that works for me. Fits LIEger perfectly.

The website was from Sparta, Georgia Check & see. My unregistered name was used. CG if he believed it was me, should have attacked me, not Marie's children. That is sexual verbal abuse towards minors.!!!!!!!!!
