Mahesh, many thanks for the incoherent ad hominem assault.

I fail to understand the point(s) you're trying to make. This is likely due to the fact that, as per usual, your long winded, gramatically tortured musings appear to be utterly devoid of either merit or substance.

Why is my "attempt" at political commentary "flippant"?

What do you mean when you refer to a "Tammany situation"?

You also write that "You seem to thrive on dragging down any and all kinds of issues put forth by writers on RTH with your vitriolic zeal – and upon which you then stand shedding light with your contrarian insights."

This does not seem fair to me. Please explain what you mean here. I was not seeking to "drag down" anything or anybody. I simply happened to disagree with a statement made by the author of the above article and so I responded to it. Isn't that the whole point of the comments feature on RTH?

You refer to my use of the word "situation" as cliched but your ironic references to the "taming of savage cultures", etc. are about as hackneyed an example of sanctimonious post-colonialist bullshit as one could imagine.

In sum, I would simply note that you fail to meaningfully engage with any of the points I actually made. Instead, you attack me on purely semantic grounds for my choice of the (admittedly euphemistic) word "situation". You also appear to take issue with the fact that I post anonymously.

Aside from that, I don't get it.
