  •  I tell you there is (4.00)
    a racoon in the garage.

    You listen, you hear garbage cans being rolled about and little raccon like noises.

    But you lost the key to the garage.

    I tell you that if you want to get into the garage you have to tell the fire department there is a fire in there and they will knock down the door and let you know one way or the other.

    You refuse to risk getting in trouble for raising a false alarm.

    Proof follows panic.  Courage involves risk of being wrong.

    Callowness involves letting the election go uncontested because you ask the impossible: proof before investigation even in the light of probable cause.

    I love you, but you're just nuts on this issue.

    •  Sorry.. (none)
      The raccoon analogy isn't working for me.. Although if there were one I'd wait for daylight and investigate rather than troubling the fire department about it!

      It's interesting how we always end up back at "you're afraid to make a public outcry."  I mean, I suppose you could go after me by saying I'm afraid to go jump off a bridge, but jumping off a bridge would also be stupid.

      •  Well (none)
        at least you can spell raccoon.  Apparently, I cannot.
