    With the Bush family and the Clinton family, succession is the problem: a perceived belief on their part that they should be a ruling family. With Texas it’s a secession problem:it sees itself as independent of the rest of the US and perhaps would make many happy by leaving.

    It’s always a good idea to take a trusted person with you to a medical visit if you have a known condition with the possibility of news. One can easily be distracted and tuned into predicting the future with some bad or just unexpected report and miss significant elements; your companion is much more likely to remain attentive. A friend told me she didn’t do the post-op procedures she was instructed in because the anesthetic had left her loopy and forgetful. She took a taxi home alone and went to sleep. The physical consequences were not severe but could have been avoided.

    Zonker has a particular facility with words which didn’t translate into good grades.

    “Here we presuppose the rich are all heartless, uncaring monsters. We have no proof, only our prejudices and counter examples like Bill and Melinda Gates (rare though they may be).” You forgot Buffet, the other exception. Three people must be a very small percentage of the one percent. And you appear to be personally an argument for the rest being heartless and uncaring monsters; you dismiss the hungry children as mistakes made by their impoverished parents, not human beings sharing your world.

    And “you know perfectly well” that some of the one per cent can comfortably watch children of the ninety-nine per cent go hungry because their parents cannot find work.

    That’s true, but plants don’t interrupt when you’re making your point either. That’s an advantage shared with this forum.

    For many people religion is the bag in which they keep all their values; believing in a divinity and donating to charity or helping a stranger in distress are acts of devotion and seen as religious. Unfortunately, some of the bag’s other contents may be a desire to please the divinity by attacking the non-believer, or an acceptance of his fellow man’s misery because the poor are ordained by the deity to remain impoverished; these are all seen as part of their religion.
    Atheists and agnostics can be unpleasant and snarky in their conviction that they are the rational ones but are less often seen attacking people of faith or waging war on them in an attempt to convert them to atheism. (Communism had atheism as a component but one that could be abandoned if too inconvenient,)

    Also, the bag is squared off, showing the shape of the bread inside, not rounded as would be a bag of coffee, ground or whole bean.
