That's not a scandal, you are just not progressive and open minded.

Democrat or republican, true or false I would pass this as a read considering no one is in office currently. I wish the Biden Family well into this year and the following ones.

True or false? Joe Biden and his wife announced their approval. That makes it news if you ask me. It's going to be one hell of a Thanksgiving at the Biden's this year!!

Marriage is supposed to be "til' death do us part.
What we do after that is our free choice.

Don't take this wrong JR, we agree like 90+ but how many of us have taken a lover that we should not have during ones life. That is just life in the big city right, it ranks right up there with Mike Huckabee's colonoscopy the other day.

I can be downright mean when it comes to ideology but on the other side of the coin I might show that it is not personal too.

I don't get many chances to agree with one of Fast's positions almost in its entirety, so though I'd usually take a pass on any kind of reply here, I don't want to pass on the chance to be agreeable with someone I rarely am.

I read that in the Eskimo culture, in-laws sometimes fill in for a natural need, when someone loses a partner. Anyone know more about this?

That seems awfully optimistic.

Many American and European perceptions of Eskimo culture come from the novel Top of the World by Hans Ruesch. In the novel Eskimos are represented as practicing infanticide as a matter of necessity. If food is scarce the children are allowed to starve, the logic being that if the adults starve then the children will follow anyway. If a woman's first born child is female it is abandoned. The result is a scarcity of adult women. A man fortunate enough to have a wife is expected to share.

The thing is that Hans Ruesch was not an expert on Eskimo culture. In his youth he was a race car driver and later he was a novelist. How much of his novel is accurate and how much he made up I do not know.

There's a rather amusing story about Christian missionaries who arrived in Canada to convert the Eskimos. The decided to build a church. There being no trees and thus no wood in Inuit territory they brought in the materials by ship at great expense. When the church was completed, and with a nice furnace installed, they invited the Eskimos to services. The Eskimos had never been so warm. They stripped naked, men and women. What the missionaries had not realized was that the Eskimos were nudists. The only reason they wore clothes was because it was cold outside.
