Yes, a piece of Victorian fantasy fiction has such a basis in reality. But thanks, mspmms, for assuming that we all didn't recognize A Christmas Carol.

You're quite keen. I have so little respect for the person, that it pains me to use his real name, much less with any kind of honorific. "Strumpf" means sock in German, which is appropriate, because he's about as limp as a sock.

On the other hand, use "pro-abortion" and watch the heads in this forum beginning spinning like Regan McNeil's.

I do understand - I know of many that felt the same way during the presidency of Bill Clinton.
