It can fail to result in a flamewar by everyone taking a deep breath and
ignoring what they consider provocative.  If you want to compare
homosexuality to bestiality or whatever the conservative coup-comment-

whether 1963 was clearly a coup attempt and how that reflects on the
writer's opinion about 2000...
