North Carolina State Fair (20 October 2003)

A few hours of decadence isn't that bad for you.

For those of you that have a problem with the meaning of decadence above.  Let me define its usage here.

Main Entry: dec·a·dence
Pronunciation: 'de-k&-d&n(t)s also di-'kA-
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French, from Medieval Latin decadentia, from Late Latin decadent-, decadens, present participle of decadere to fall, sink -- more at DECAY
Date: 1549
1 : the process of becoming decadent : the quality or state of being decadent
2 : a period of decline

Main Entry: 1dec·a·dent
Pronunciation: 'de-k&-d&nt also di-'kA-
Function: adjective
Etymology: back-formation from decadence
Date: 1837
1 : marked by decay or decline
2 : of, relating to, or having the characteristics of the decadents
3 : characterized by or appealing to self-indulgence

Take note of  the 3rd definition of decadent above.  This is the meaning that I am making use of here.  Nothing more nothing less.

If you want to infer something else, that is your problem.  I refuse to give my language to those that would like to steal it from me.
