Reminds me of my ex: as far as he was concerned, if anything went
wrong in the world, and especially for him (e.g. if he made a
mistake), it was the fault of women, blacks and gays (but said in
very insulting terms which I won't use here).
Herman is right about this: the people who most need to see the world
as it is, may not be capable of it, without major attitude
reconstruction. I got absolutely nowhere in nine years of constant
effort. One article, which he wouldn't read (except to insult the
writer) wouldn't get anywhere.
I've seen a very effective-looking house-brick somewhere... <muses> :D
