61. To keep this up is futile
as you feel yourself persecuted and minimized by me ,despite my efforts to assure you otherwise. Please allow me to close this discourse with the words of an old and dear friend, my High School valedictorian in fact, sadly too soon dead:

"There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you cannot take part, you cannot even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies on the gears, and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus. And you've got to make it stop."
Mario Robert Savio
1942-1996

Wonderful and timeless words and , when set beside your petty bickering and boasting, ring even truer and more clearly.
