Boldfaced statements are parts of the original essay (or a subsequent reply) to which the respondent has directed his comments.

Italicized/emphasized comments prefaced by (R) are those of the respondent and are presented unedited.

My replies appear under the respondent's comments in blue text and are prefaced by my initials (MB).

Can you imagine a bunch of government-backed class-action lawsuits against gum manufacturers for the emotional trauma caused by the noise and mess created by chewers? How about background checks, competency tests, and revokable licenses for purchasing or chewing gum? Well, maybe I'm going a bit overboard here. But, it *would* be fun...
