    Maybe it's because Philip is a kind and decent old man who has been around longer than most, and has been paying attention to world events for a long long time. Something alien to the likes of you. I garner Cesar will not cave in to childish pier pressure, and certainly hope that will not be the case.

    I oftentimes intentionally spell a word incorrectly to see who focuses on the one single word, yet ignores the thrust of the post. It's my simple-minded way of weeding out the pigs so as not to throw my pearls at them...for a pig has no use for pearls, and will trample them. (other than my simple human error mistakes, which are pounced upon by kindly hearted schoolmarms who have really helped me with my spelling here) and as if I even know who "jerk" is...
