    I've never found it that difficult either to express my opinions and then move on.

    I also think that one's mood has a great influence on how one is able to handle different situations.  I know that sometimes when I over react internally to differences it has more to do with ME at the time than anything else, so I seldom ever engage in those instances.  The next day, things that may have irritated or upset me, don't seem nearly so dramatic when I feel better. :)  It's sort of the same as being bored or feeling that there's nothing to read here.  Of course, I like eclectic content as well as politics and human interest, so it's usually me at the time.  I always try to think of Thoreau's statement that it's not all books that are as dull as their readers in instances like that.

    More: Some men think the Earth is round, others think it flat; it is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat, will the King's command make it round? And if it is round, will the King's command flatten it?

      the quote from Thoreau, never heard it before. And yes, I think our mood when we land here has much to do with how we react to comments.

      In the end, any comment we make or reply to, even if we're on the rec list, is history within hours, retired to the infinity of things written on the internet, now completely forgotten.

      That's a bit of humility that should calm us all down, and take the edge off our anger and any self importance we might harbor.

      "A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues." Theodore Roosevelt.
