According to James M. Emmerling we all know there is a fine line between violence and sex.
According to Robert Scheer (Truthdig) justice Antonin Scalia doesn't know. Obviously, Robert Scheer does not know of that thin line. According to him, Scalia has, by writing the opinion of the Supreme Court on the California ban on violent video games, confirmed, although unspoken, that violence is normal while sex is obscene.
Quite a distance!
So the assertion of Emmerling contains a claim, which is contestable - we all know - and a proposition which, according to my modest opinion, is unquestionable - there is a fine line between violence and sex.
Because violence stems from violins.
(Or it was the other way around, I don't remember well.)
In the old times, before the gun was invented, the Nobles used strings to throw stones at their enemies.
The Mafia uses still strings to settle a feud.
Speaking of sweeter consciousness: you can touch the right chord, or pluck the G-string,
Yes, Emmerling is right: it's a fine line between violence and sex.
He's absolutely right.
Fine fine as they would say in Italy.
And yet, the two shall never meet!
According to Emmerling two persons are involved: a last one - who'll be the first - and a first one - who'll be the last.
First I have to admit that I am an expert in neither violence nor sex (in violins YES, but that's not the question).
Being a pacifist I never used violence, I reject it.
Concerning sex: I do it only when no one's looking, so I'm never told if I do it the way the job has to be done or not.
... what I do know is that the first and the last must always be together.
And of course, they are always fighting
» She was the one who started the whole thing.
» No your Honor, he was the first.
Like Strauss-Kahn and that chambermaid.
Oh, we, the good men, we know where to draw that fine fine line.
Why is it then, that men like Strauss-Kahn (or the Weiners) always are spoiling our appetite?
That's it: these men are ruining our sex life!
Yeah man. Right you are!
