: I get a turn to be a knee-jerk reactionary too, don't I? You guys
: are so stingy.
I never thought you were a knee-jerk reactionary, man, I always thought you were a clever, insightful, rational, calculated reactionary. One that is rather good at evading the issues once his arguments have been blown sky high, and who tends to avoid any real debate of the issues, requests for clarifications or sources, and any debating nitty gritty, resorting to purile sarcasm rather than native wit or insight. Then again, I always have been a very poor judge of character.
