Subsidiarity is written into Canon Law. The higher you go, the less power you HAVE. The lay person has more power over the domain of his house (or even her house) than the parish priest has over his parish, the parish priest has more power over his congregation than the Bishop has over all the priests combined, Archbishops have even less power over their subject Bishops, and are practically autonomous from the Vatican itself. The Least Competent Authority is a real concept in the Roman Catholic Church- and holds sway.

Basic != Visual Basic

The correct way, in classic basic, to designate type was with a suffix- such as "A$" for a string variable named a and "I%" for a loop variable of type integer. DIM was short for "dimension" and was only used for arrays.

Now get off my interpreter, you young whippersnapper.

When someone says "I want a programming language in which I need only say what I wish done," give him a lollipop.
