O come on. I quoted material directly and you don't know?? Go look at the
first post by Tosh (I think). I believe the sentence "he could make any
woman his slave" is followed immediately by the assertion that he was "the
man." And I don't know why you think I thought *you* were revering pimps.
The stuff I quoted wasn't from your message. As I said, I love reading
Iceberg Slim. I just think it's . . . interesting how sometimes *certain*
posts really blur the line between revering the writer and revering the
pimp. No need to get so defensive. I think Shakespeare said something
about protesting too much ...
