Interesting that the article was written some 27 years ago. I wonder how the author would view political correctness now. It certainly hasn't gone away. If anything it has become more entrenched and become mainstream normality.

Re: Missing Thread

I can remove threads, and sometimes have. I'm pretty sure I didn't delete that one, though. If I had, that action would probably show up anyway in the log that AMod consulted. (At least, I think it would - not 100% certain about that). Like AMod says, there will probably be a new moderator/ass-kicke...

Re: David Lewis (1941-2001)

No relation at all, I'm afraid. :) In the 1990s I had an admin job for a few years in the Philosophy Department at King's College London. One of the lecturers there, Dr Chris Hughes, was on the editorial board of a scholarly journal (Mind, I think) and had been communicating with David Lewis about ...

Re: hi i am back

From memory, Bill Bryson in his book "Mother Tongue" speculates that Yankees is derived from the Dutch "Jan Kees" meaning "John Cheese", apparently the name of a sort of stock character in Dutch culture. If correct, this would mean that the word Yankees dates back to the time of the Dutch colonies i...

Not much gender philosophy in here. I mean there is some, but not very much at all. So I'm moving this thread to the Lounge.

The "blue states" are the ones that tend to vote Democrat, while the "red states" are the ones that habitually vote Republican - ie they are the more right w...
