White Rose Discussion Question: How would you respond to the opinions Ms. Grigoriadis's expressed in the magazine "Rolling Stone?"
Extra Credit Question. Do you think that "Twilight" has been a "MEME!" (pronounced like cream) And that vampire stories by other authors (and their characters) AS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN for works such as: IE "Vampire diaries," "True Blood," etc, have been changed (Because of "Twilight") so that the characters and their stories are more "Twilight-like" in nature?

In 70 BC when Julius Caesar subdued Gaul (present day France) one thing that he found repugnant about the Gauls was their religious beliefs. Their priests were called Druids. And some of the specific things that Caesar found particularly offensively about Druids were, their practices of human sacrifice, and their practice of religious cannibalism. And even more offensive, to him, was their tradition of participating in "Burning Man" ceremonies. In a "Burning Man ceremony, a hollow three or four story statues of a man is built from logs and sticks. The statue was then filled with bound humans and set ablaze.
I have a feeling that people that don't respect themselves and who don't respect the people they go with, tend to resent and project their self loathing on those that don't feel the way they do.

Dyslexics are often are very gifted people. Over 4,000 years ago when writing was first invented "The more gifted people were most all dyslexic so they read from right to left. That is why all ancient writings (ie Hebrew, Egyptian, Greek A FORM, not B form. are written to be read from the right to the left.
Later since (for some reason) since most people, can read easier from the left to the right, writing was reversed. But dyslexics are just genetic decedents from the gifted scribes who invented writing in the first place. ! ? dyslexia your about better feel you don't, Now
Dear Renessme's Mother,
And then to have the audacity to critique "Twilight" when obviously the only things you know about the story, are what you have heard from "the peanut gallery" on the "Chelsey Lately" show.
And I studied the Hawaiian human sacrifice shark pens in Kona. As well as the Mayan sacrificial alters in Belize. So a biographer could just as easily draw implications about my nature as well. Especially since my interests are, if anything, along those lines, even more intense than Ms, G's.
As "The Beven" would say " I enjoy it when friends are kind enough to politely point out weaknesses in my arguments.
Thanks: Your Friend, Doc B
