Russ didn't call me condescending; he described part of my message that
way. I didn't call Russ parochial; I described part of his message that
way. To my knowledge, neither of us took it as a description of our
person or calling each other names.

I yearn for the day when describing someone's words is not taken as
describing the person. But I suppose we're not there yet.
