ganz, I don't follow what distinction you're trying to make there. A traitor is one who commits treason, no?

But it seems to me that the difference between "traitor" and "founding father" is very...

I hope, however, that it doesn't wind up turning into a huge problem for the child concerned.

I wonder if your 'rollercoaster' terminology refers to roads laid out like one around here. The road goes up/down a long hill, and though it's undoubtedly had work done on it over...

I once had a car come up behind me, moving fast, and sit on my tail on a two lane road.

Why wouldn't they? The water doesn't care whether the driver of the car is resident or not; it'll drown you either way.
