      Now, point that out to many on this site, if you can.  It just gets...OLD.

      I was really just telling angelajean I understand how it feels, and that I tire of it at least as much as she, I imagine.

      It reminds me of, say, burglary reports, or heroin in high schools, or any other petty or larger crime.  There are those who say "How could that happen HERE?!?!?"  It can happen anywhere, whatEVER "it" is.  And it does, with tiresome regularity.

      Peace.

        or any other stereotype that we grab. I thought when I came to a progressive blog I would leave a lot of that behind. Looks like I was wrong... but there are enough of us here to correct the misconceptions. We'll get 'em yet.

          with their grace, ignorance, foibles, and generosity.  It's a package.
