? pair of words I heartily detest are?*noble*?and?*redman*, particularly when they occur together. Some of my egg
head friends from the Hub tell me that I shouldn’t, since they’re merely an ancient colloquialism used to describe a race of aborigines on the American land mass.
The American land mass? Where? Why?on Earth, of course?where would ancestors come from? Yes?I know it’s not nice to mention that word. It’s an obscenity. No one likes to be reminded that his ancestors came from there. It’s like calling a man a son of a sloat. But it’s the truth. Our ancestors came from Earth and nothing we can do is going to change it. And despite the fact that we’re the rulers of a good sized segment of the galaxy, we’re nothing but transplanted Earthmen.
