    a long, long, long time ago

    Dear ROTFLOL,

    Apparently, my posting 1838
    has been misunderstood. I intended no defense of the
    tobacco or pork industries. Like you, I consider them
    indefensible. Moreover, I join you in supporting the phasing
    out of both industries. Clearly, NC will be better
    off without them, as will consumers. I was merely
    affirming p4p6's understanding of the historical linkage
    between the two. As Jean Jacques Rousseau is also
    considered a romantic, allow me to express some sympathy for
    farmers caught in the middle. In my community, "sunbelt"
    jobs have softened the economic blow.

    On a
    personal note, I, too, remember Jim Crow. As a college
    student in the 1960s, I joined the struggle against it. I
    have always been proud of that. Since you cannot
    possibly know what I have internalized, your ad hominem
    attack on me is not very enlightened. As the dying
    Goethe said, "More light!"
