    In an episode of M*A*S*H tonight - Klinger and Major Windchester were in a windstorm while on the way to Seoul and came across an overturned truck with several injured GI's.

    So Klinger says "But it's hopeless, but we can't give up"

    I trust we have the same attitude while serving the Lord.!

    Heavens sakes, I read the title of the thread and thought it was about a dead rabbit.

    There is no point when Salty would say, "I am sending good money after bad?"

    "Chauvinist" means someone who continues to fight after the war is lost.

    Does it, Bill? I never knew that. I thought that "Chauvinist" meant someone witrh an excessive sense of self-importance or superiority. I suppose such a sense could lead a person to continue to fight after the war is lost, but is such fighting the definition of "chauvinist"?

    Thanks, Jerome! I've used the Online Etymological Dictionary several times in the past, and should have done so this time.

    (Gina - I love carrots; do I qualify for one? :laugh: )

    "The name is a French form of L. Calvinus and thus Calvinism and chauvinism are, etymologically, twins."

    God making an "insider," gnostic joke?
