     The *rational* within quotes in my original
     post was in jest, it seems a clumsy jest.
     I was trying to point out the irnoy of present
     day followers of EVR and CNA who derided the
     faithful with statements such as "kadavuLai
     nambubavan muttaaL,"  proclaiming JJ, a corrupt
     megalomaniac and an apparent believer, as the
     greatest thing that has happened to their movement.
     Whether or not EVR and CNA are great and/or rational,
     I am unconcerned.
