All based on 3rd hand gossip from a real estate agent who sold a house to Brittney Spears.

I did say that it wasn't a very strong argument. But thanks for reading my post.

Dave, most of the time I regard you as a fairly middle-of-the-road type, but the comments you made last night....

"It's a shame that a tragic disease has become a vehicle for corruption and profit."

"It's all about return on investment."

...with the ridiculous, cynical insinuation that someone would do this solely & primarily for 'profit & return on investment'...

To my eye, those are pathetic comments of an as#@&%e.

Maybe I've misread your persona all along. I'll try to be more observant. In the meantime, you've been around ST long enough to know that when one puts out strong positions like yours, you'd best have a good thick skin.

I really wanna be done with this thread ... but what's with the personal attacks?

I don't know whether to laugh or be creeped out by this. I guess I'll laugh...nervously.

apogee, you don't know me, you have never met me, but apparently you believe your are entitled to, and qualified to, condemn my entire character.

All these years I thought I was living a decent life, only to learn that John Jacobs, a top-rope instructor, has reconciled my account and declared that I come up short.

And how does he divine this wisdom? He's read a few posts on the internet!
(at least I had a third-hand story from a real estate agent...)

Of course you also don't know Angelina Jolie, have never met her, and know nothing about her except what her PR department releases...but you are awfully butthurt when some stranger on the internet makes some critical comments about her.

(As for the "return on investment" comment, I was referring to the corporate donors to the Komen foundation referenced by the link. Maybe you were too distracted by your outrage to click. It is the case that I was comparing your Angelina's monetary donation to those made by these corporations.)

Apogee, we don't live very far apart. I always figured I'd run into you at a crag someday, shake your hand and say hello. I still hope to do that.

In the meantime, I'm done with this conversation because it's just a little too weird.

The last word is yours.

Dave Kos = Mangy Peasant?

Yeah, this is getting pretty weird. How many avatars have you held over the years, Dave?

I'm sure we could shake hands, should our paths ever cross. Like you, I'm actually a pretty nice guy, but I can be a pathetic as#@&%e, too.
