Okay. I can sort of see the part of Diogenes that Paris might reflect. Usually I associate Diogenes with hardship and the giving up of wealth. But the one aspect, the doing anything in public you might do in private, could be the only minuscule trait that Paris has. I still don't see how bb made that transition. He means to make our brains implode. ](*,)

Keithite-my reference was to roser's assumption that all Republicans lie and that Democrats are truthful.My contention is that like Diogenes it would be hard to find "one honest man"in Washington.

To the surprise of absolutely no one Mike Nifong has dropped rape charges against the three Duke students.Other charges are still pending.
I hope when this is over that Nifong is made to pay for his politically inspired persecution of these young men.Here is a man whowould send three innocent (rich,white,probably Republican) people to jail for 25 years to insure his electability.

Keithite asked:

I'm saying that that is the way Nifong sees it.This whole effort on his part stinks of racial politics.He needed black votes to stay in office and saw this as an opportunity to keep his job by pandering to an angry constituancy.
It's "Bonfire of the Vanities" redux.
