BS... Your passion for this issue is eloquent. Your words are empty.
And I do not care what anyone else has said or written on this issue.
You have been persuaded to your belief system. You can refer me to any
number of web pages. But what I want to know is what you think and
feel. Look Bill, I like you. You have lots of good ideas. But we will
get nowhere as a species until we get everyone to be willing to shatter
our own illusions each day. That is all we can do.
