Xeno, the cynic? Whose afraid of him. He's been dead for centuries. I studied him in Philosophy of which I got a BA, or was that a BS. Anyway, philosophy gave way to art which gave way to hunger which gave way to automechanics, nobody trusts them, and now I'm a fiddler, prehaps the direct result of Xenophobia. I haven't thought of that guy in years. This may be a lousy first shot on a thread, but sequels like JAWS 2 etc. are frequently duds. Is this maybe rather Xenophobia Squared in a mathematical sense. Do we fear Xenophobia in others and not recognize it in ourselves, or perhaps we can turn it inside out from fear of the different to fear of being the different. Love your neighbor no matter what planet you think s/he/it's from, and love yourself for your differences. What's to learn from people who look-think-feel-act-live just like us. Xenophobia=Ignorance. It's free, but can we afford it? bigalfiddler.
