    My general ethic means no mentally-handicapped jokes. No jokes about bipolars or schizos, either. Those are debilitating illnesses that cause a person to have legitimate problems functioning in society.

  6. Unfortunately, there are now a couple of intermissions in the drama — Marshall has deleted (along with associated comments) two of his posts (those in Acts IV and the first part of VII above).
