  •  Wee Mama has two (6+ / 0-)

    attributes above anything I've achieved:

    1.  A Ph.D in science -- she teaches me daily because I'm a tehcnical moran; and

    2.  She is a better person than I could hope to be.  I admit it -- I try to aspire but fundamentally know I can be an asshole when she is a saint.  That's life.

      As to 1, I am delighted to share what I know, and it takes an eager learner to have an eager teacher.

      As to 2, I am like you simul justus et peccator; if I've been a positive presence here I'm glad, but I am only too aware of my shortcomings to be a saint simpliciter.

      Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.

        someone whom I consider a raison d'etre for being here.  I have learned both science and humanity from you.  I have thought of myself as a good and moral person -- and science moran (can't be changed).  Goodness and morality can always be improved by mentors.
