Right.  You don't care that they INVENTED logic -- the word,
the concept, AND the principles you still revere, of course.

Is your knowledge of Classic Greek culture REALLY so poor that
you think they went for *CHICKS*?!

I see it claims "hundreds of supporters" with a "What's New"
page last updated over a year ago... very impressive success

What an abyss of poor taste you display here.  Dr. James Cooke Brown,
the inventor of Loglan (from which the Lojlan project split -- and despite
the acrimony over the years, they do *NOT* deny their debt to him,
nor his genius), died last year, of course.
