In the next few days, I intend to post a piece born from my adolescence in Texas during the Kennedy years. I am warning you right now that if you are offended by harsh criticism of the fringe Right Wing in America, if you are put off by actual experience as opposed to ‘beliefs’, if you, for whatever reason, believe that the most appropriate response to change in this country is violence, then, by all means, do not read that post.

You, as a group of individuals, have the absolute right not to read anything I put in front of you. And I respect that. However, you never have had, nor will you ever have, the right to ask me not to write it.

Veritas liberabit vos, or perhaps more appropriately, ephaphtha.

Looking forward to reading your post and hope it's as honest about the wingnuts as I expect it to be!

Jill,
You are correct about the meaning of the word. It is mentioned in one of the 'healing stories' in the bible when Yeshua (Jesus) puts mud in the ears of the deaf man and he is able to hear again.

The word is believed to have originated from the Egyption god, Pathah.
