good things about Dover and his findings

Thanks for the correction on my bibliographic note and for proving me wrong about generalizations on Greek homosexuality. I was fearful of a barrage of ill-informed discussion of the subject. I've particularly seen the term "pedophilia" bandied around to refer both to child abuse and to the institutionalized relationship of older males with ephebes. The misinformation is really dangerous when these issues are discussed in the churches--as in the current constitutional debate within my denomination (PC{USA}) over ordination.
