    And congratulations on the 15 years -- that shows great inner strength.  I have a grandson-in-law who struggled with alcohol for a long, long time.  He's a good man, and if I hadn't been blessed with all daughters, I'd have been happy to have him as a son.  He recently celebrated six years of sobriety.  Myself, I used to get thoroughly plastered once a year, on Purim, but don't even do that any more.  The rabbinic command for that holy day is to celebrate and "drink until you can't tell the difference between 'Blessed is Mordechai' and 'Cursed is Haman.'"  Age has enabled me to fulfill that commandment without the wine.  Heck, half the time I don't remember who I am these days.

    Anyway, yes, I think you picked up on the gist of what I was trying to say in my oversized post up yonder, that many of the problems with religion are caused by the urge to convert everyone who believes differently.  The world would be a much kinder place if more of us learned to mind our own business.


    For this you went to college?
