comment Were Roman emperors officially considered kings of Egypt?
@Anixx - The "while in Egypt" there is very important. A proper pharaoh has important cerimonial functions that must be carried out in person. Therefore a ruler who isn't living in Egypt cannot really be considered in the same class as the rest of the ancient Pharaohs.

comment Umar ibn Khattab and Omar as a Western given name
..which really shouldn't be all that shocking, as Hebrew and Arabic are both Semitic languages.

+1 For a question about Thomas Nast. When I was in grade school I wanted to grow up to be him. Sadly, I can't draw. :-(

comment What was wrong with Hitler's left hand?
Reworded this a smidge to make it more appropiate to this site. I don't think the core of his question was about the portrayal, but the historical facts behind it.

comment Have there been gay riots in the US?
Just as we don't use salutations here, your name bullet at the end will do for a signature. Also, this probably isn't the place for a lesson in how to use Google to research things, so you may consider editing that part out of your answer yourself. Other than that, a very good effort for a first post. +1 from me.

comment What was Gandhi's post-factum view of the Partition?
RE last paragraph: That would be great. Your answer matches my understanding as well, but I have no better source for this idea than a veiwing of the Ben Kingsley Gandhi movie 30 years ago. I was hoping to see something more authoratative here.
