Wow!!! I was going to say tag, but then the thread got hijacked as I was cathcing up. Then as I read Nat said everythign I wanted to say a lot more beautifully than I would have said it, but I did have a few more points that I wanted to state. And lastly, I dont even know that you all were just talkin bout. I caught the Chopin, but the Gibbers and Cream lAdy!?!?!or whatever! Am I an idiot if I like to read Business books and listen to Jay-Z or Fall Out Boys?

Who invited you?

The door was kind of open and I let myself in.

I prefer Gibbons's lighter touch:

I tried to get tickets to his recent recital at Carnegie Hall but it was out of Mr. Stafford Loan's league.

By the way A&P if you haven't already heard this I'd recommend it:

http://www.amazon.com/Busoni-Piano-Concerto-Op-39/dp/B000038I6D/

I've never listened to Busoni, but perhaps I'll check it out.  So masculinist this one sounds, though.  And I thought we already clarified that A doesn't like Hamelin? ;)

Never mind him, Chibundu.  We were being rude.  But I believe in this case that the hijack was purposeful.  The thread should, by all rights, be dead.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

to answer OP...we have a much bigger chance of being outted due to our smaller numbers.  my reason anyway
The Tragicomic: Its embodied in the blues, jazz, (HIP HOP, CORNELL <<one slight deserves another!!!!<< REALLY MISSED THE BOAT ON THAT ONE!!!) and the African experience in the New World -- the ability to withstand terrorism, embrace ones worst enemies lovingly and bear the unbearable in song.

There are plenty of applicants that do not post their LSAT scores, not just blacks.  When I first got on LSN, I had my numbers posted but no additional information.  I kept getting emails from people on that site asking me questions that would not support my anonymity.  From there, I first removed my GPA and left my LSAT and then I took my LSAT off because I still got those emails. 

Additionally, questions like these should be posted in the BLSD portion of this site and not under Affirmative Action.  What are you trying to infer?
Just accept that fact that I am better than you.

You mean imply?
no bloody or unbloody change of society can eradicate the evil in man: as long as there will be men, there will be malice, envy and hatred, and hence there cannot be a society which does not have to employ coercive restraint.

I said infer and I meant infer.  I know what imply means and that is not the term I wanted to use.  I was honestly seeking an answer for the OP because I think the topic is intersting.  There was nothing accusatory in that sentence.

I think leo was confused because usually someone doesn't "try" to infer something.  He either does it, or he doesn't do it.  You can "try" to imply something because implication requires an audience, while making an inference is something one can do by himself.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

OK - I wasn't trying to infer that you were being accusatory --  ;D
