41. And that is a worthy attitude to have about ALL our "opponents".

I mean it; I may disagree with people, but it takes a lot for me to "hate" them.

I hate people who hurt other people, deliberately. That's kind of my line. So when someone on the board tells me I "enjoy hurting people" because I post a picture of Sophia Loren in a bikini, on one hand I laugh, but OTOH I say ..."really? that's really how you see it?"

I've seen some nasty stuff said or implied about certain people around here, and really I think it's a profound shame. I think we all probably have more in common than we may know. And probably each of us has our own motivations which others can't see. I really do wish people could try to be more understanding of each other; I'm not immune to that- I can do better, I am capable of listening. But listening -and communication- is a two way street.

For instance, I know you and I both like at least one of the same bands.
