"I felt your comment was extremely narrow and showed prejudice. Elegant dress styles differ in parts of the world, and in parts of the USA. (I suspect there may be less variation in the UK due to the smaller land mass and more compact arrangement of…"
"Sir, your comment is offensive and implies to me that you live in an eastern city.
In Texas as well as the inter mountain west, jeans and cowboy boots and hats are the height of fashion. Perhaps you are confusing work clothes with dress clothes?

If I asked you to send me a check weekly with 70% of your pay in it, would that be reasonable? You'll note the comment inside the book where a reporter said something along…"

"Too much depends on the concept of god you are talking about. Even Plato/Socrates god varies widely from what Epictetus was talking about. Name has nothing to do with it.
