    for sure!

    Just remember the fighting mood you were in while nursing that broken heart.

    I'm feeling better today, actually. I'm starting to think this whole thread was the most fascinating read.  Such intelligent, passionate voices.  But, I was so wimpy with my "scary" post.  Carson's assessment was brilliantly presented but I'm siding with those with the cooler heads now.  Fear of modernity and this manifestation of extreme regression is going to undo them.  We just have to keep from being destroyed in the process.

    Yes, you and your Dad are right about appealing to better angels of our nature, we do need to do that.  We pummeled Bush with his "go shopping" answer to what American could do for their country, but we haven't replaced it with our own challenge for larger-than-ourselves sacrifice.
