Lighten-up a bit, folks. In truth, nothing we say or do here will make one bit of difference to anyone except us, with the possible exception of Greg, who may write a book someday about what screwballs we all are (including him) and make the big bucks. If you read the news you will likely learn something, even if it’s not true. Have some fun here; let’s not take or ourselves too seriously. If you enjoyed an article, or if you have additional information, make a comment. If you don’t comment, we think that you’re not interested. Drop the hate and bitterness. Treat each other with dignity and respect. Enjoy, and Trick or Treat.
