Princeton Guy,
I reply to the first statement

I ignore the jokes that follow since they proceed
from the first assertion which I answering at that link, and are also done well in
Cyrano de Bergerac and a movie with Steve Martin and Darryl Hannah called "Roxanne."

You also stated,"
So, I could agree with how you compared yourself to GWB ..."

If you marked the question that way on a
test given by the Educational Testing Service
there at Princeton, I believe it would be marked
as being wrong. I had posed a model comparing
the _relationships." I am to you what you are to
George W. Bush, I said. That does not compare me to George W. Bush. It compares the relationship
you have with George W. Bush to the relationship
I have with you. Relationships can refer to a social positioning,
or they can be cause-effect, or business relationships, or almost any metaphorical construction.
If you want to tell me you think this is hair-splitting, I will call you "Harv" from now on. He is anonymous and frequently spams me.
