I've been away for a while. I spent an hour or so catching up on about 600+ posts here. Very entertaining reading, but often very tiring.
The predominant posters of late could be designated "The 'Plute - Aok - Physalia' Show". Or more simply, "The PAP Show". Which leads me to the dictionary....
Main Entry: pap
Etymology: Middle English
-- something lacking solid value or substance
I enjoy many things -- great music, competitive sports, substantive discussions, and yes, even some 'pap' on TV like 'Big Love' or 'Boston Legal'. I guess it's not too surprising that, as a guilty pleasure, I also enjoy the 'PAP' here.
BTW, I considered Ponte as one of the "P's", but his posts are either too acerbic or too sage to get the 'pap' moniker. And as for Persh -- well, he's been strangely quiescent of late.....
Yours is a completely non-sequitur response. Surely you know the difference between PAP as an abbreviation for a word (papillomavirus) and the ACTUAL word pap. Or do pharmacists lack a mastery of vocabulary?
What exactly are you trying to say about yeast -- or are you trying to be funny? Do you think Plute, Aok and Physalia are 'rising' stars?
Regardless, a poor response by any measure.
Your close, but read carefully:
� Edmund Randolph said that of all the plans being discussed, "those proposed by George Mason swallowed up all the rest." Nearly 50 years later, Jefferson added, "the fact is unquestionable that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of Virginia were drawn originally by George Mason."
The Declaration of Rights was approved by the Assembly on June 12,1776, and 17 days later Mason had a final draft of the state constitution approved by that body. Although he remained in the legislature four more years and influenced nearly all major bills, Mason never made a more important contribution than authoring the first American document that limited the authority of governments and strengthened the rights of individuals. �
Jefferson in fact didn't know diddly squat about it but spoke authoritatively 50 years later, as a matter of fact Mason simply translated the Bill of Rights from an existing document pre-dating it by about 200 years fer sherr.

Ponte der Teufel
Mr. Pierson, CEO of the Pierson Bank in Amsterdam wouldn't lie and he didn't post it on GOOG, GOOG did not even exist FCOL. Mr. Pierson introduced me to his banker friend, CEO of La Jolla's bank or S&L, and that is how I came to buy my lot in SD for $10K.
Mr. Pierson passed away a long time ago and I was just reporting what he told me like a parrot fer sherr. What's your problem, gringo?
You won't find who wrote the Bill of Rights on GOOG either, gringo.
Utterly Ponte! Kiki
