Double-plus ungood, in fact) (too messy, yeuch); and you (Burke) used the ‘M’ word. Of course he meant ‘persons’ … or at a pinch we might accept ‘people’ …

  2. Sir, thanks for your recent Like of a post at my blog, American Infrasound (“African Slavery Would Have Continued in the U.S. If ISIS Ran the Circus”). I’m now following your blog and look forward to keeping up with your posts. It’s always great to discover another individual out there who’s decided to become a “citizen journalist” and fight the distressing situation in the world. Although I’m an American and on the other side of the globe from you, it’s as if we are fighting the same war. I totally agree w/ ALA’s statement about “individual liberty, small government, Western values, social fairness and an integrated multi-ethnic society”. Keep up the good work!!!
