Well, I don't keep filthy rags in the house--and I boil
dishwashing/cleaning sponges--but if your body is washed daily,
your underwear is changed daily, and you wash underwear that is
stained with bodily waste or blood in the sink before throwing it
in the hamper to contaminate the rest of your clothes, how dirty
can it really be?


"That wickedness weltering around inside of you, inside of everyone, is
sacred somewhere.  There's a deity out there who digs it.  You can respect
and love your darkest side, disposing only of what is obsolete or
impractical.  It's all about giving yourself permission." --Jack Darkhand

"It is better to be cruel for love than for hate." --Thomas Burnett Swann
