Thanks, Dad.  I'm sure we're all appropriately chastised now.  Shall
we go to bed without any supper, or is it time for the belt?  We'll
never do it again, I'm sure.  We know now that getting angry is a
very bad thing to do unless you're on the right side of the issue,
and we'll certainly traipse off into our rooms where we belong.
(How could you not see the LACK of respect in that last
sanctimonious tag line up there?  Or was this merely a last rhetorical
grandstanding against those nasty, rotten folks who don't couch every
argument in enough qualifiers to bury them?  "Those awful people---
Gee, I'm glad I'm not as bad as THEM!"  Geez.)
