    Interesting. I remember reading about Azrazel and Samahazai (sp?) in Robertson Davies' "The Rebel Angels". They were depicted as angels who came to...

    I have finished reading it. I gather it is many people's favourite book of Gaskell's. I did not like it as much. I hope Roger married Molly. I...

    By the way, I posted about Brazil's history of racism only because WolfLarsen claimed Brazil was a superior country to the U.S. It had nothing to do...

    Verbal jousting with JCamilo is like fighting a five-year-old. Victory is easy, but there's not much glory in it. "Ad hominem" means "to the...

    "Sharing"? It wasn't your idea, JCamilo. Besides, you are now just making another ad hominem argument -- if Jorge Luis Borge made a claim, it MUST...
