51. Hi Granite, welcome to DU.
Good observations.

I've always thought that liberals in general are more likely than conservatives to be open to the many shades of gray that reality hits us with. Lately, here at DU I've started to re-examine that assumption.

I suspect that when things get emotional - both sides revert to "true-believer" mode. Although I think the RW spends their whole lives their.

I'd still like to see more thoughtful posts here - even in these troubled times. But I think I'm SOL on that.

Peace

:thumbsup:
