Well Dear Members and Elspeth Most Noble,
Amara lenti temperet risu, if my Latin holds up. from my favorite poet Horace. It means: " let him soften bitter things with a gentle smile." I repeat, a sense of humour, ie underlying kindness and a sense of proportion is of immeasurable value. Even to try to cultivate these things. As for this Court Jester, or Fool in Residence if you will, I cannot help it, I tease and pick on those people whom I like. And I like just about everybody. The fonder I am of you the harder time you are going to have. Of course with those AHEMS, I fully expect our moderators to be more than able to take care of themselves, which is what makes it so much fun. why pick on somebody who cannot dish it to you back?
As for ganging up on people, don't you think that is just a bit much? While of course you may disagree, and we all do have these dumb ideas now and then don't we. Well maybe you don't but I do. Just go read some of my posts. DUMB and full of typos to boot. But then some of them are minor masterpieces. So why go and get hotted up because somebody else did something you think is not so bright, stupid or is just plain wrong. YOU DIDN'T. Be grateful. If all else fails there are after all all those blasted republicans. Cheers
