RE: throw away society

Yeah...he is a good man...and he does the dishes, too! I grew up in a
family of 7 kids, where my only sister and I ended up doing dishes by
the ton load and to this day, I can't stand that chore! And luckily, I
found a man perfectly willing to not get hung up in gender based
division of labor. :-)
