Here's another one of those titles wherein it might be good to ask oneself what reaction it engendered upon reading it. After all, since I seem to have a knack for being able to vex, irk, annoy, and otherwise bother folks with what I write, perhaps an initial assumption might be that this post is about a political/social/cultural issue which remains problematic even into the new millennium.

Well, it could be.

But it's not.

As I was in the shower the other morning, I realized that I can now correctly identify Blackhawks, Chinooks, Ospreys, and Apaches flying overhead -- just by hearing them -- as we had all of them flying over us within a short time. (They're various flavors of military rotary-wing aircraft, also known as helicopters.)

Now *there's* a statement I'd never expected myself to be able to write, about a skill I'd certainly never imagined acquiring!

That's discrimination I can live with.

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ

Fine use of the word...and I wish that some day it would be the only meaning which isn't archaic :)
