Heaven Forfend!

Todd would *never* be guilty of the Primal Sin Of Mockery [PSOM]! [N.B.
Pronounced just as it looks, "pee-som". ---- DSH]

_Au contraire_, Bennett is the best little arse-kisser we have seen here
on SGM in five years ---- a champion brown-noser of the first flush ----
indeed *before* the first flush.


Deus Vult.

"You're the top! - You're a Waldorf salad. - You're the top! - You're a
Berlin ballad. You're a baby grand of a lady and a gent, You're an old
Dutch master, You're Mrs. Astor, You're Pepsodent. You're romance,
You're the steppes of Russia, You're the pants on a Roxy usher. I'm a
lazy lout that's just about to stop, But if, baby, I'm the bottom -
You're the top!" - [Cole Porter, Yale '13 - 1934. The sixth sentence
supra was reportedly Cole's favourite in the entire song. ---- DSH]

| With respect, there is an enormous difference between Mr Hines'
| abuse and Todd's analyses of the data you have presented. These
records can
| certainly be evaluated against other ancient records, literary,
| and archaeological. Todd has pointed out that this data is internally
| inconsistent with everything we know about the periods in question,
and has
| no claim to credibility given what we know about Irish historiography.
| That is not mockery, that is basic historical scholarship.
| Since Todd has clearly demonstrated his case and you really don't seem
to be
| able to get the point, I see no reason this thread should continue.
