    Corporal punishment may or may not have been included with the “official list” of what’s politically correct; but the evolution of acceptable behavior would include both in about the same time frame.
    In any case, meanness has little to do with it. Much has had more to do with a public frenzy over terminology, gender notation, etc.
    I read of an Ohio newspaper reporter going after the nickname of a high school. East High was known as the home of the “Orientals”. His campaign forced the officials to make a change. No such pressure on The Oriental Trading Company, a local Oriental Rug Company, adds for trips to the Orient, stores filled with oriental noodles, etc.

    Sorry, Yank, but some of us have been working.
    Local store here serves oatmeal-cranberry cookies all day long. Never failed to get a warm one when I went in.

    Some call it “ranting” as in not approving of a cartoon character, a plot sequence, or even bringing up a topic that matches one of his phobia.

    Socrates was dealing with folks who were interested in truth. It doesn’t work with those who already have all the answers and can’t see any new light.

    @ the rest of you
    In my country, a man once said, “Do not engage in dialog with one who already has a question for your answer. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.”

    And here, I always thought it was started in the northern climates … for other reasons.

    Always tough trying to apply statistics to two numbers; but in defense of the uncle, the humidity can moderate that 10° difference in temperature.

    @ Nab
    My optics prof must have done his warm-ups before he entered. He lectured with a lab tech and a 3-panel, double/sliding, 5′×5′ chalkboard … 150 sq. ft. of space. The slides were always down and filled. We needed to have those copied before class began.
    When he started, he raised the first panel and started to write/talk. When filled, he raised the second and continued. At the third board, the tech started to erase the first; and they continued to leap frog for the rest of the hour. All we could do was scribble onto a legal pad without looking down. Had to recopy notes into some readable form before we could no longer follow our original mess.

    I sweat when the temp gets over 72. That’s no help when the dew point is mid-sixties or 70°.
    No fun being wet when evaporation doesn’t happen.

    Today the dew point is in upper seventies; temp is in upper eighties; “feels like 98°F” … or so say the weather folk.

    Wow! Makes you wonder what all is in that water.
