At least you got the beginnings of an answer and were not
brushed off like so many big corporations have the tendency
to do.

To the reporter commenting on the photo of the banner: Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making it possible for me to rest in the assurance that there is no hell. I place my faith in you. Can I get a written hold harmless and indemnity agreement on that? (And thanks for the quote from "Devil's Dust".)

Furthermore, can't we all agree, as a semantic proposition and in the interest of cultural harmony, to stop calling the little thing an "apostrophe" and start using the more politically correct phraseology of "comma to the top"?

Heaven knows, let's get politically correct.

Big corporations employ a lot of people, have big payrolls, pay big payroll taxes, provide health insurance and retirement plans, pay big office rents, make a lot of good things and provide a lot of services that people buy and pay sales taxes on. Are you getting the picture? Big Corporations - Good. Big Government - Bad. "The business of America is business." Get into the game. Have some fun. Make some money. If it makes you feel guilty, give it away.

Are you referring all that to me?
I don't have any argument. It's all about money.
