Tara Cleveland said (and said well) a bunch of stuff.

Hi Tara,

I'd also like to thank you for responding. [I think I was also feeling 
a bit of the "... and they came for 'x' and I did not speak up" guilt 
the other day for not jumping in immediately.]  So thanks.

Maybe Deke was having a 'bad hair day'. I dunno. It happens. Part of 
the 'danger' of email (at least for me) is that it's pretty easy to 
hit that 'send' key before you cool down and think things through.

... and part of the job of a community is pointing out when one of us 
is out of line. (I feel a little silly pointing that out knowing that, 
eventually, everyone gets a turn in the barrel ... and the next turn 
could well be mine!)

In the end, we'll never have control over how other people think or 
act ... but we'll always have control over how we react!

Peace Out (Gee, where did I steal _that_!)   ;-)
