This is a message that I would like you to pass around to anyone and  
everyone, please.
I have just finished reviewing the compilation of papers that  were given at 
the Cerisy Colloquium in 1999 on the Bayeux "Tapestry".  Let  me quote from 
the conclusion:
"... we should in future refer to it as the Bayeux Embroidery, and no  longer 
as a "Tapestry".  All the assembled experts were in agreement on  this formal 
point, while admitting that it would take a number of years for the  correct 
term actually to pass into current general use."
So, please do not call the amazing embroidery a "tapestry" any  longer.  It

"But if by a 'Liberal' they  mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, 
someone who welcomes new ideas  without rigid reactions, someone who cares about 
the welfare of the people --  their health, their housing, their schools, 
their jobs, their civil rights, and  their civil liberties -- someone who believes 
we can break through the stalemate  and suspicions that grip us in our 
policies abroad, if that is what they mean by  a 'Liberal,' then I'm proud to say 
I'm a 'Liberal'." John F. Kennedy, 14 Sept  1960
