    Sans violence reconsideration of Valentine Day may be sensible since under mask of romance quite a bit of commercialism appears to rule the day.

      Yeah, but the same is true of Jesus’ supposed birthday (unlikely to be his real birthday).

        WRM discussed same in his Thirteen days.

    It’s weird for a holiday that probably has its origins in the Roman Lupercalia, one of those late winter moments for letting off steam.

    The “religious right”? Seriously? You want to conflate radical Pakistani Islamists who attack people for celebrating Valentine’s Day with – who? – maybe pro-life Christians?

    You know how certain people are always complaining about how certain other people – they never seem to think its themselves – are coarsening political debate by being needlessly antagonizing? Just asking.
