.......or Hedonist with Inhibitions
Treat you like crap.Fire you.Humiliate you.Then make you a stamp.
Sad what came before but heart-warming to learn what has followed!
Nice story, Frank, but your final comment has me scratching my head - doesn't make sense. Britain is far, far, far ahead of our country on gay rights in every direction, and as the story says, the Prime Minister officially apologized on behalf of H. M. Government in 2009 for the way Turing was treated sixty years ago. How do you get "makes it OK" out of all that?Mmm, maybe it's time for a cookie and a nice little nap, eh?
Russ,All I'm saying is, I'm not sure an "official apology" and a stamp can ever neutralize the horrible ordeal of "chemical castration" and Turing's ultimate death by suicide. Necessary but not sufficient gestures. But, can I have milk with those cookies? Chocolate chip?
I have no argument with you Russ, I just don't express my thoughts as clearly as you do. Perhaps unclear thoughts should just not be expressed at all. The PM's speech was indeed moving and significant. I admire him and the UK for all they have accomplished on the human rights front.Other than that, I will delete my commentary.I'm in no mood for cookies.
Hey man I hear you, I have my bad moods and hangups too. Sorry if I hassled you.
