Subject: RE: BS: The end of the world is nigh.
Marty, you just didn't get it. Since one of our fearless leaders, the beloved Dick Cheney, made use of the f-word on the Senate floor, I thought I would try it on for size in what I deemed to be an appropriate context. But being the cultured and refined person that I am, I found that it didn't fit me at all. You, obviously! Cheney, apparently. Meóno. So I merely rephrased my statement in a manner that reflects the gentleman that I truly am.

I'm sorry if you had difficulty with the word "consideration." I forgot that it has five syllables, and that, for your benefit, I need to limit my vocabulary to words of two syllables or fewer.

Now, as far as the impression you have that I "cracked and snapped," that was only my aging back (I thought I'd be generous and throw you that little sop, since you take such delight in your misconception that I'm some sort of crumbling antique). If my experimental venture into ancient Anglo-Saxon verbiage constitutes "cracking and snapping," your history of posted comments indicate that you are a veritable spider-web pattern of massive seismic fissures.

Good Lord! Even California doesn't have such faults!
