You know, for me, a lot of the fun has gone out of mocking ing "Amerind" and Greenberg. The work is so bad it kind of feels like picking on some helpless and weak person. I once did some work comparing Proto-Tai and PIE, even that looked better than Amerind! -- Brad Coon Somedays when you wake up, its just not worth chewing through the leather straps.
