Matt Giwer deserves a lot of respect.  He is not trained in history, he
does not have a large historical library, a scanner, or access to primary
materials.  And yet he still scores points, gives as good as he gets, and
takes the heat, mostly alone.

His lack of accuracy is more than compensated by his refusal to accept
counter arguments that are frequently little more than appeals to
authority.  I don't always agree with the language he uses, but his

Well, since you are in the mood for questions, what about these?  Do the
expressions *String him up!*, *String up that puppy, twice!*, and *Hang
them all!* imply hate?  Do you think it odd that such expressions of hate
be directed at individuals who have already been dead for 50 years?  And
since those remarks emanated from your side of the aisle, what does that
say about the hate fighters on your side?
