  1. I do like the manner in which you have framed this challenge and it does indeed give me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, through just what I have personally seen, I simply just wish as other commentary pack on that people today keep on issue and in no way start on a tirade regarding the news du jour. Yet, thank you for this exceptional point and though I do not necessarily go along with the idea in totality, I respect the perspective.
