What authority has the right (and under what theory) to tell you what to do with your body?

It's a very old question. The ultimate case is suicide, but the thinking rules birth control, vaccinations, fluoride in the water, the military draft, "the pill", suicide by Big Mac, smoking, slavery, certain kinds of sex, it goes on and on.

Sunday we will tee off with suicide but it's not about that. It's about WHO CAN TELL YOU WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR BODY.

OF course, WOMEN need not attend, they shouldn't worry their pretty little heads with such manly thoughts. And of course poor people just need to just keep working. Minorities should leave such things up to those educated for leadership and don't get me started on racial differences.


If you're not there, that leaves it up to ME, Dick Cheney and the Pope to control your body.

Dick Cheney and the Pope are certain they have the right to control your body. I am at least willing to discuss it.


Sunday, 6 PM, Hollywood Fred Meyer's Deli, the Pope will be dressed in white but Dick and I just look like to bland old white guys.
