Hey, did someone open a window? I can swear there is a hint of 'fresh air.'
Hope it's not my imagination. Restoring a sense of 'communication' and
information sharing/debating would be a welcome relief.

There is absolutely no reason why -anyone- on this list should be
'attacked' for any reason. (Self-defense excluded, righteous indignation
is just that, righteous!) you guys don't know how lucky you are to have
access to some of the folks that participate on this list. Beginning with
my battered friend Linda.

Think how lucky you are that she (and others) have made themselves
available for us to get to know, ask questions, and -communicate- with one
another. She has shown what a gutsy and strong woman she is by responding
to people whose character demonstrates that they are not worthy to shine
her shoes.

You'd be surprised how much people loosen up and talk and reveal themselves
over a friendly cup of coffee or a glass of wine. How much do you get from
someone that you are kicking and spitting on?
