    Ban,
    Herk NEVER once mentioned anything racist .The Cubano remark was posted by someone else . You are making a stretch to provoke an argument . I am glad herk has not taken the bait.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Thanks Russ. I've been swimming in these waters for a long time. I know when the bait is stinky and at trolling speed it's best just to leave it alone.

    WOW, Can wrestling season please start soon?!!!!
    Herkey--I was going to post this several days ago, before the board got hijacked again.

    Anyway it relates to your comment about Norwegians. I lived for 9 months in Norway when I was 7 years old and it was just simply a tremendous time. I thoroughly loved it. While my family was there a Norwegian man related the following story: "An American, German, Frenchman, Italian and a Norwegian went to India and spent time with elephants. After they returned home each one wrote a book. The American wrote The Biggest Elephant I've Ever Seen"; the German wrote 1,000 pages on the smallest bone in the elephant's body; the Frenchman wrote about 300 ways to prepare & serve elephant; the Italian wrote about the Love Life of the Elephant; the Norwegian wrote about Norway and Norwegians." He related this humorously and to give us a big of insight into Norwegian culture. Norwegians are very happy with their way of life and don't worry about comparing themselves with others.

    Herkey, I thought I would share this to lend some support to your thesis above about Norwegians. A very delightful people! As a PSU fan I can't always agree with you; but I thought I'd take this occasion to do so!!

    That's a great story Tom and explains quite a bit about my Dad, Grandpa, Great Grandpa and probably myself. However, I'm only half Norwegian, but it's my good half.

    I know that he didn't but he DID question as to whether or not xyz's (or whatever his username is) post was bigoted by referring to Florida being "full of Cubans."

    Now, how could Herkey find that to be "debatable," yet when I mentioned my dad's views, those were clearly "bigoted," as Herkey said?

    Got it now?

    Never been there but have always wanted to. Someday before I kick the bucket, my wife and I will make the trip. I would assume winters are very cold and the summer is very beautiful. I heard the wrestling sucks though.
