Amazing how things get twisted in here. Smile
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Well somehow in another thread you thought I said the Cubs would beat the Mets!

Probably because I said the Cubs would beat tee Mets but that is another story.

Nobody said it was. But when it's pointed out, don't call the person doing the pointing a liar.

Ed, take a deep breath and then look at the line you wrote just above the line you quoted above.

And where in this thread did I call you a liar?


You didn't. Starrpower called mastermindreader a liar.

Here's exactly what you wrote:

Before you call someone else a liar, you might well look in the mirror.

Sounds like projection to me.

I was gonna' suggest that to Ed myself, but I actually "thought" you'd bring it up. And you did.

Certainly not worthy of a Mastermindreader, but noteworthy just the same. Smile

I still have trouble laughing at the misfortune of others, much less their deaths.

Please don't attribute your own inaccurate inference to me. I was suggesting no such thing. You, Ed, are just as much a rabble-rouser as the individual you seem to feel the need to jump in an defend. You want to create drama by not even allowing someone to expand upon a post. In fact I am quite compassionate and empathic, it's just that I feel empathy for ALL parties. You seem to only care about those with whom you agree.

I'll be happy to explain if you are man enough to listen. However, I suspect you will just claim I am "backing out" since you don't REALLY care to listen with an open mind.

Okay, Liar, I still don't see where I said I would not "cater to" those who had allergies.

In fact, I am very much in favor of accommodating people's needs, but within reason. For example, in my school we had a table at which people with peanut allergies could have lunch. Friends were welcome to join them, as long as they chose not to eat peanut products. That is a reasonable accommodation, and one that apparently worked, because in 17 years nobody had a severe allergic reaction that I am aware of (that's 600 kids X 180 lunch periods X 17 years = approximately 1,836,000 lunches consumed without a severe allergic reaction). What would be UNreasonable is for
almost 2 million lunches to be consumed without a peanut butter sandwich, peanut butter cup, or Nutter Butter cookie because a few had allergies.

Had you been man enough to ask me for clarification before making reckless inflammatory statements, we could have avoided this.

I for one would not suspect you of backing out. I think you have integrity and the courage of your convictions.

If I were to back out, I would do so by admitting if I was wrong (like I did in our discussion about "origin" TV shows). I am not above doing that. But in this case, Bob chose to attack me by attributing things to me that are inaccurate.

Sorry for that. It wasn't directed at you at all.
