    the conversation in thread is vastly superrior to this post, which, in all honesty, I thought was not one of my better efforts.

    I thank you all for joining the discussion.

      and extremely well written, especially when you got to the huge long quotes from Lincoln.

      But I was just thinking what you wrote, what a great conversation it provoked even though I was wrong in almost every thing I said.

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.

        of humor about yourself. We all try to do that without bitterness or rancor-but you set an example & you were successful.

        Meteor Blades seems to do an outstanding job of community moderation despite the abject failure to be perfect.

      In particular, how do you think your OMGHUGE quote reflects Lincoln's transition. I hope you will do so at some point.

      I think this looks like a B/B- essay. There's an A essay in it somewhere, though. :D

      Ok, so I read the polls.
