I haven't come across this "make love with," yet. With any luck, I never
will. If "make love to" was good enough for both Jo Stafford and Muddy
Waters, it's good enough for me. ;-)

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
