Most meat I eat is veggie, from Gardenburger or Boca. These seem to me to be getting better all the time. I also eat eggs. At a rate of about 12 a year. (This is a nostalgia thing. There was a year I lived on hams and eggs and English muffins. And ever since then, every once in a while, I just need ...

Here's wishing you find an equally deep and satisfying love among the members of your own species. Everybody'd have to take their clothes off first. then they'd have to forget language - because that's the real problem, -isn't it? (don't argue it. it'd only prove the point.)

and to the point Wouldn't that depend on what the point was? And since the response you're responding to was to something that I wrote, --then it's only I that has the right to say exactly what that point -my point - - to which the other was just "to the point" to, -to you, -was.

To be technically accurate, I did not know Andrea, other than his name, and the dozen or so posts he wrote to alt.music.leonard-cohen, and his photograph in the gallery. And yet he left a strong impression on me. "warm and gentle", a "thoughtful, gentle soul", - is my impression of him too. But what...

And, if so, then, to some degree, or other, he must have been, consciously, or unconsciously, aware, of the following poem, when he wrote 'The Story of Isaac': THE PARABLE OF THE OLD MAN AND THE Y...
