"That is discriminatory," said Jesse Jackson. "What's next? Will the U.S. claim to be separate from Mexico?"

    Nous parlons francais in our house and sometimes wir sprechen Deutsch auch, and we even use sign language, but most of the time we speak Californian. As in: 'Sup? Howyadoon? K, seeya. Buh-bye. If any state needs its own translator service, I do think it would be (ahem) "Joisey". From whence comes my dear old dad.

    Et moi, mon amis. Being "FROM" Joisey is better than being "IN" Joisey! When I worked as director of engineering at L'Oreal, I told a Vice President, "Je ne parle pas Francais." And he said in English, "If you can say it, it is not true." Then he said, "Sniff".

    There must be a new Califor-dialect now, with Austrian accents.

    My other language besides Latin ("Arma virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris") and Englitch ("I'm gwine to Joisey, youse guys.") is Russian ("Штирлиц читать умел очень давно. Так давно, что иногда забывал как...) ("Stirlitz could read very often. So often, he sometimes forgot how...")

    Hey, when you gonna comment on the new Pope. Were you upset at not being chosen? You would have had my vote, but I'm a woman and not Catholic....so I guess I don't get one, huh? :)

    Meredith, We (<-- note, imperial "We") appreciate your (<-- note: lower case) comment. Yes, the Cardinals rushed to judgment before Lacy and I could get there. But then, they are all old men; and frequent bathroom calls don't leave much time for debate.

    Now, the Church is much more inclusive, so your views as a woman and your vote would be welcome. Where do you think they get all of the paper to make the black smoke? Right: the votes of the nuns.
