I am sorry you percieved that exchange as friction between
us. I frequently am at odds with viewpoints and stances that people
protray, but never do I carry that through to personal friction; I
hope we may disagree, even acrimouniously, without the debates
affecting personal relationships.
I also am sorry you percieve my messages as "harsh"; though I
am certainly an advocate of plain speaking, I try quite hard not to
respond in anger, and to attack the person rather than the
argument. What you term "harsh" is what I term speaking plainly.
Good day to deal with people in high places; particularly lonely
