yeah...Madafo personally informed me of that, but I did not know whom I
quoted. Thanks for setting the record straight. You didn't have to...(no
"ought")...but, I'm glad you did, and my public apologies to Madafo for that
...now, to your declaration.....that they "ought" to practice what they
preach as being judged good or bad that they do is an ethical statement. I
too believe that. Relativistically speaking, they are none the worse if
they do or not. Should there be a higher law on the other hand...
