GUEST,Starship Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing (165* d) RE: Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing 19 May 20

I think what gets many of these discussions off-track goes back to what is being discussed. Fruit is a class of food. So poster A says s/he likes fruit. Poster B responds and talks about how much s/he likes bananas. Poster A says bananas are a berry. Poster C says, berries are fruit. Poster D says fruit gives him/her the runs. Poster A says, the discussion here is about fruit.

Lots of people are speaking well, but mostly about their pet fruit. And no one ever mentions the pomes and drupes because despite pomes and drupes belonging to the broader category of fruit, they are ignored by people who like bananas. It's a strange strange world we live in, huh?
