It also smacks of anti-Semitism. Both Jews and Muslims believe in circumcision. It is part of both religions. Many Christians choose to have their sons circumcised for general practice. Many doctors are pro circumcision for cleanliness and to stop the spread of diseases. Dr. Berry Brazelton advises parents that the son should look like the father, if they were trying to decide what to do. So these people in "liberal" California, S-T-O-P it! Stay out of our bedrooms, wombs and diapers. These are personal decisions, not taken lightly. Stay out of it. And "liberal" California, it's time to take your State back, before it's too late. Come on now. You can do it. Get your mojo back!
Making a 180 degree turn, back to language. There are two more words that are repeatedly mispronounced and I don't really know why. The first is the fabulous word etcetera. The first time I really remember hearing that word was the great Yul Brynner as the King in the movie, The King and I. He said it perfectly clear and crisp. E-T-C-E-T-E-R-A. It begins E-T. Like the cute little alien in Steven Spielberg's classic film. Why, then, do so many people say E-K-C-E-T-E-R-A???? E-K. No, it's not E-K and so many people say it that way. Don't know how it got started. I hear it in life, in stores, on TV, etc. Bugs me. The other word that has evolved into a similar problem for people...espresso. It is an Italian word. It is a type of coffee. E-S! Can you see how it is spelled? And yet, I hear many people saying E-X: E-X-P-R-E-S-S-O! Really? Come on people, if you can't say it, don't order it or offer it.
