But in case you need a reminder...



Simple-minded, two-dimensional idiocy (the cartoon, that is)...but thanks for posting it just the same as I would be hard-pressed to find myself exposed to such garbage otherwise.

Once again, your arrogance is overwhelming. I have no idea why you assume that I am not respecting the victims and families of 9/11.

I could say that you would do well to not preach to me how I should do anything. But that would be arrogant and presumptuous if me, would it not?

arrogant: having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or abilities

petulant: (of a person or their manner) childishly sulky or bad-tempered

pompous: affectedly and irritatingly grand, solemn, or self-important

You really have to be careful with words, Shayne, especially those that have more than one syllable. Really, there is no shame in keeping a dictionary next to your keyboard (or heck, just go to

-- Now THAT comment was arrogant/pompous...oh, and funny (and spot-on)! --

Actually, I stand by everything I said and do not require a dictionary. My chosen words were exactly the ones that I meant.
