To be clear, Russell, you are quoting me quoting Stephen. I did not
assert those things. I would not.
I still think his list is silly beyond belief and will be either
quaint or opulent within a generation.
And I still think the whole idea of such entitlements is ludicrous,
"Exercise acceptable clothing."
Gov't Spandex for EVERYONE! It's a badic human right!
