That might only happen once our morays (which allow for self-destruction) have been white-anted.

No problem

<<"political correctness" will become "politically incorrect" and thus implode upon itself>>

PC=infringement of free speech - a form of censorship - little different from totalitarianism. All "isms" operate in one direction only...clearly seen in daily life. An a white guy I have to take all the crap and made to feel guilt. Any retaliation and I am evil. I was also born male and like being male but after watching PC dominated GMTV this morning, that is another sin I have committed. Maybe I will get something right one day.

well you certainly cleared up on most of my confusion...but I still wonder why American Football is called football

Do you read? The people who play the game have always called it football and like calling it football. The ball is kicked in the game. It evolved from the same game as soccer. What is there that is hard to understand?

Kicking a ball.

Running with a ball.

Hitting a ball with a stick.

Hitting a ball with a stick and then running.

Doing any or all of the above on ice or in the water.

That about covers the lot doesn't it?
