Ciao Byron! I was not "enlightened". By your link. The one where you malign all who disagree with you. Why do you do this? You do not have arguments. And I mean argument in the good sense. A presenting of reasons why something is true. I have written to the Owl about the fallacy he uses when he ment...

Ciao Dem! I cannot go to the New York event. It is because I am not able to afford it! Somehow I think the real reason you are not going is because you can not afford it either. But saying that You hate the U.S.A. and that is the reason you are not going sounds so much better! I am not going because...

Ciao Everyone,


I will admit it, yes! I am xenophobic. I will let you guess which country. :D But Jerry Lewis is a genius there.
That makes me afraid. Very afraid.

Ciao Byron, Yes! I remember the Oscars from that year. Michael Moore did get an award. I remember the big showboat (i think that is the word) he did on stage. I also remember Peter O'Toole got his lifetime Oscar. He gave a moving speech and was full of class. The contrast between the two men was so ...

Ciao Omnia,


Wonderful poem. Especially these lines -- "And memories of unforgotten battles pile up
A hill of tiny ants with big leaves
On evenings like these..."

Cioa Everyone,


Of course Michael Moore won the Palme 'dor. That was a fore-gone conclusion. How could he not? It's a prize from a country that thinks Jerry Lewis is a genius.

Ciao Kleinschmidt! I don't think you will get "many takers" as my American friend sayson this topic. I know what you mean about the laugh. I don't mind it on Take Manhattan but on the bootlegs where he laughs on Takes this walts or Tower of Song it sounds fakey and dumb. I was playing it once for my...

Perhaps if you had used the sad icon :( or the crying, very sad icon :cry: or the wink icon :wink: about the United States, I would not have misinterpreted. But you used the worst one, the twisted evil :twisted: . So that is why I interperted it the wa...

Ciao George!


"For the mirror is the food to the ego of vanity"

Did you write this line after seeing Leonard's "looking good"? :lol:

This poem has many good lines. You are getting better and better.
