[Liberty Valance lays shot in the street]

[ Dr drinks from whiskey bottle, kicks over Liberty Valance]

Perhaps even the OP should not be in general discussion.
Like it or not, talk of sexual harassment, especially in todays litigious society, is not only "controversial", but by its very nature invites further political discussion as it relates to current workforce policies and trends.
Its like trying to discuss neo-prohibitionist activities without bringing "politics" into the discussion.
Dean may disagree, but I still say Tex's comment was benign. I think the most offensive part of it was the fact that it got the point across. Everyone intuitively knows what he meant. That, I think, is what got Dean so bent out of shape.
Now, of course, the thread has degenerated into a bashing of FNC which is in no way relevant to the topic at hand.

Weller Tex is the one who brought politics into this thread by adding "I'm no left-winger, but..." to his statement. He later clarified his statement and expressed regret but it started with that first post.
Rob was merely saying that it was unfortunate that issues like this had to be connected with politics. Weller Tex's next post was more or less in agreement with Rob's point that politics shouldn't be connected with issues like this. I think pretty much everybody in this thread agrees with that. So let's stop trying to find people to blame or portray as vicitms and move on.
