Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, when I encounter this thread, I feel myself becoming inert, lazy, and lacking in the necessary fortitude. ;-)

I really should be responding to more of the excellent comments in here.  And I see plenty to argue with, too, but the thought of backing up my statements takes the fun out of it -- I'm more of a storyteller anyway.

So thank goodness for you and Jerome and people like you bringing all this data -- it's the least I can do to say how much I appreciate it.  

There're also some other comments such as Gaianne's and DeAnander's that I've completely ignored because they're so brilliant and substantial that I mean to attempt to give them a deserving reply which I so far haven't mustered.  So now I'm inert, lazy, and guilty as well.

I actually didn't realize this thing would get so big.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
