20. I like DF. He was a jerk to Rachel awhile ago but I like the way he thinks.
You don't have to agree with someone to like the way they think.

My conservative friend Richard MacMillan once said in reply to the question "How are you?"

"The constitution is the supreme law of the land!"

I was frankly hoping for "the wife and kids are alright and the doggies are good too."

But that quote will stay with me forever.. because he is right. Perhaps differently right from me but still right.

And with that... some fun

"The Argument Clinic" One of the three Monty Python sketches ever.

It taught me what an argument was. I still use some of those things I learned in arguing with someone.

"What was it that I said that made you think I meant what I didn't mean?? Because I would like to improve my communication skills."

I have never had a satisfactory answer... except prejudice.
