    (imageWIS @ May 08 2005,08:27) Must we constantly come back to only two topics on the forum? Have we lost all originality when Black and the One Who's Name I Shant Repeat are the only topics of interest left on the forum? Enough is ENOUGH. Jon.
    'line how is will thread out.'
    What? I'm not like an FCC bureaucrat; ad hominem attacks are no basis for a valid counterargument. I simply criticized the subject matter directly, not its posters directly, whereas you on the other hand... Jon.

    Thinking about it, I dont know that black shoes are 'for waiters' (i pulled a nice photo off the NY times site today of the shoes of quite a few world leaders at the v-day event in russia - all are black) but black pants certainly are.

    I've never seen black odd trousers on anyone (with a shred of style sense) but waiters.

    What a ridiculous post.  Stil, I think I will keep wearing my nice black wool pants, and you can stick with your ill-fitting wrinkled khakis.  How's that??

    Yes, Ernest do not worry, even in English that is right. If you put a comma in that manner it does mean that you are addressing them. You were correct in your English.

    Hey ernest, You're not black, so use the "N" word with utmost caution if you are ever in the US. Â Seriously. Â French/American relationships are strained enough without the death of a huge AG Faconnable wearing Frenchman at the hands of an angry African-American mob to further complicate matters. Welcome back though. Â Place hasn't been quite the same without you.

    Ernest, no matter what, even if the girl is a "millardaire," I hope you know a thing or two about life in Iowa. Chances are that Hilditch & Key, Dunhill and Lanvin will not be found there. On the other hand, if you're in Beverly Hills, maybe we should be asking you for advice.
