Regina:

Well said. A sense of perspective is appreciated. Sometimes folk say
offensive things and it does no one any good to let things pass by being
nice; sorta like the recent thread on DDT and poisoning squirrels.

You know, I admit to having used Roundup on poison ivy last year too.  I
would not crow about it, though, knowing or even suspecting the collateral
damage it does.  It is a choice I would probably make again today, but it
saddens me to poison the earth.

I might even be capable of killing a man in self-defense. And I suppose I
would be relieved if I turned out to have the strength to defend myself. But
I sure as hell would not rejoice in it.
