There is no disputing matters of taste.

Among the skyscrapers of Downtown Manhattan it's not unusual to be unable to see something less than 500 feet away if you are a ground level, but if you are in a skyscraper in Downtown Manhattan you are unlikely to be at ground level. 

I should be reconciled with the phenomenon by now but it is still fascinating to watch a certain breed of self hating liberal frantically making excuses for the medieval and repulsive actions of Islam, while if their own culture had done things one tenth as evil and stupid would be foaming at the mouth with self    righteous indignation.
