It seems like we have all had fun picking on the use of 'cat'. I would
like to close this discussion with something I learned in school long

A big cat is a Lion, and a Lion is a dangerous animal. However, a
little cat is a pussy, and a little pussy never hurt anyone.


Technological progress has merely provided us
with more efficient means for going backwards.
