  1. Sorry, I've bowed out of this "discussion," and most others.
  2. I don't know why you quoted me there or what you're agreeing with, I was just asking a question to see if there was a particular reason for the the original post. (Though it does make a change for someone to agree with me on this forum!)
  3. Is there an interview in which he says he hasn't played tracks from the album since 1980?
  4. No. I'd ask what you were talking about, but I prefer not to pursue it. Leave me alone.
  5. Respectfully--why not? Never mind. Humor. Look it up.
  6. He was talking about moderators. CALM DOWN, for crissakes.
  7. And let's face it, that particular poster caused major problems with all 25. If it was fast and frantic, they wouldn't have been hanging around taking dozens of pictures, would they?
  8. I know you were, but my point still stands. Obviously both being Christian denominations there are going to be certain similarities, but there wouldn't have been a Reformation--which was like a religious revolution--if Protestant and Catholic theology wasn't fundamentally radically different, just as many Protestant denominations are radically different from each other (Episcopalianism and Mormonism [Latter Day Saints], for instance.
  9. His face is explained by the caption, which says Jimmy and his girlfriend are waiting patiently for their bags. They're at baggage claim, and that's the face I usually have in those places!
  10. Without arguing which of their shows was most important and whether this counted as a Zeppelin show without Bonzo, blah blah blah--surely the fact that it was the first time three of the four members, plus the son of the fourth, had played a full-length concert of Zeppelin material since 1980 (in 27 years) made it sorta notable? It had nothing to do with how important they are or aren't.
  11. I agree, That's the Way was a wonderful moment. I loved these particular arrangements of all the Zep songs (except Black Dog, but then the only version of that I like is the studio version! But still, I think the person who walked out because of it ended up missing a real treat.) Springsteen does, but as you say, he makes it known beforehand--it's become like a "stump the band" part of the show. (And quite possibly not as spontaneous as it appears!)
  12. By Catholics, possibly. To Anglicans, Protestantism isn't just a watered-down version of Catholicism. Protestantism and Catholicism have radically different understandings of both the theology and the practice of Christianity.
  13. then you're just not looking hard enough. Some of them are in your own posts! Much better.
  14. Could you think up another nickname for Al Qaeda? Please?
  15. Seems you're trying very very hard to push buttons here yourself. What's classless is the level of discussion on this issue, which surely deserves more serious thought and less knee-jerk braying and ad hominem attacks.
  16. He was wearing a T-shirt suggesting as much on his Cambodia trip a couple of years ago with Halfwit.
  17. I'd read so many articles bitching about Obama this morning, he was obviously even more on my mind than OBL. And I didn't defend him either, though I should have. Anyway, I think this is another of those agree-to-disagree deals.
  18. I just spelled out the parallels. It's not a question of actions or of scale but of morality. I'm not defending Obama, for heavens' sake! But wrong is wrong is wrong.
  19. As this was your second response to my post, I guess I should reply. My point, which I stand by, is that the writers I was referring to were gloating over the ugly death of another human being whom they regard as evil (and I agree with them about the "evil" part). Morally, that's pretty much identical to bin Laden. I'm not supporting either of them, and certainly not him.
  20. It's a very serious concern, realistically--and the gloating I read in many news reports about him being shot in the face make me wonder if the writers are any better morally than he was.
  21. Where was I disagreeing with you? Did I say I wasn't sorry to see him go? I can't believe so many people seem to have their heads in the sand and think there won't be further murderous acts against Americans as a result of this action, though.
