LOL.  What could be more "wetting your pants" or "throwing a hissy-fit" than
the paragraph below.

At the risk of being thrown off the Mark Twain Forum, which I enjoy very
much, one thing I learned from Mark Twain, called "Youth" by his wife and
writer of numerous hard-hitting essays and satires about the powers that be,
is NEVER to "grow up and over it", and never to tell other adult people how
they should behave in the face of things they - often for good reason -
don't like seeing.

Modesty and civility forbid me from speaking my full mind here.  But really?
THIS on the MARK TWAIN Forum?  Sheesh.

Subject: Re: Boycott by International scholars???

If people outside our country want a say in how we do things, they have a
simple solution: Become an American citizen. Until/unless they do that,
their opinions about America and/or about how we do things and/or what we do
don't a damned thing to me. . .or, I'd bet, to any American who can think
half-way logically. I suspect that what I'm saying here will offend any
number of Hard-Left colleagues in this Forum. For the record, I didn't vote
for Trump. I wouldn't be caught dead voting for Trump. But, like it or not,
he's the POTUS now, and everyone wetting their pants and throwing hissy-fits
just needs to grow up and get over it.
