    Around here, the Dallas PD still plays touch football against the Ft. Worth PD in their annual Pig Bowl.

    Seriously.

    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    Hence why I said it lost its meaning by the time the hippies grabbed it. It's even further removed now.

    I think you just did. Fun, huh?

    Actually, I think what your doing is going beyond a simple political debate and is starting to get personal. And I think the same can be said about me.

    I suggest we both take a step back, take a deep breather, and then come back to this later. Fair?

    Finn, you're taking this much too personally. There are times when I do need to "take a breath" on this forum...but this sure isn't one of them. Lighten up, my friend.

    Hey, I'm OK. Remember, its hard to tell sometimes when people are being serious or not on this forum because of its very nature.

    In any case, I think I need to take a break from this forum myself.

    With a name like Finn MacCool??!! DP is whatever you make of it...a place for some interesting fun is how I approach it. Sometimes it's more "interesting" than others.
