Ah, Mr. McVay is back, cross-posting his patronizing, insulting,
and self-glorifying prose yet again to can.general.

I truly didn't think he'd have the nerve to return so soon,
especially after fleeing with all of that egg on his face.

Our memories are not so short, Ken.

=== End of Mr. Swan's article ===

In short, Mr. Swan claims that McVay is the author  of the quote

: >Notice how another 'revisionist', unable to support his arguments with
: >facts,  resorts to teenaged sexual comments. Were all of you maroons
: >cloned from the same defective brain cell?

The article to which Mr. Swan was responding, however, clearly
attributes the quotation to another user, 
electriczen@nospam.bigfoot.com:

That would certainly explain why they don't have more than a single
functioning neuron between them, would it not?

This discussion reminds me - Saturday, June 28, is Pride Day. There
will be a massive parade in Toronto and other cities. Folks who would
like to stand up and be counted for tolerance should attend. Last
year, about a million spectators lined the Toronto route. 

(The Phelps Clan should probably stay home - they don't know the
meaning of tolerance.)

A sobering reminder: During the past ten years, one half of Canada's
arts community has died of AIDS. _Half_ - Dancers, actors, artists of
all sorts. Such a loss cannot help but have a devastating impact upon
our cultural life, and homophobic cheap shots don't remove this very
sad reality.

"Revisionist" my Aunt Tildy. These twits wouldn't know a revisionist
if he bit them in their nether regions.

In short, Mr. Swan falsely attributes the remark to McVay.
