OK, so let me get this straight.
The Aorist of BALLW is a 2nd Aorist, EBALON. But its Aorist Passive HAS the
Theta, even though there's a stem change. So the Aorist Passive of BALLW is
NOT a 2nd Aorist Passive.
The Aorist of GRAFW is a 1st Aorist, EGRAPSA. But its Aorist Passive DOES
NOT HAVE the Theta, even though there's no stem change. So the Aorist
Passive of GRAFW IS a 2nd Aorist Passive.

about nuclear proliferation, just as politicians sound like rutting musk
oxen when they attempt to commit music. It would be irresponsible and cruel
to judge either group by their avocations.
