Liberal bicycle commuter, political junkie, policy junkie, free thinker, I've got too many titles. All in all I'll leave it with a quote from the late Senator Paul Wellstone of Minn. "Politics is not about big money and power games, it's about the improvment of peoples lives."

Where's the love?

It simply amazes me, I will get email telling me that I am full of crap. In the email the individual will refer to a couple articles, a couple quotes and some questionable facts. After all of that is said and done they do some cheap shot personal attack on me as like a "ha told you." If right off the bat I can tell that they have no idea what they are talking about then I usually don't respond and let them have their 5 minutes of fame. On the other hand, if I feel that they have their facts wrong and they still feel the need to attack me personally then I will spend an hour or so explaining why they are incorrect.

I read or listen to 75 to 80 different news sources every day. I'm well educated and I happen to know a lot of details about things other people would consider highly boring. Am I always right... of course not. I will say this though when someone rips me apart in an email and I write back and explain why they are wrong and show that their facts are inaccurate, that really bends folks out of shape.

I find it interesting, when someone is able to enlighten me regardless if I'm wrong or not I gladly except that. I love learning more and anytime someone offers up new or more accurate information I welcome it.

Oh as a side bar to this little tale, if you are one of those folks who email me and rip me apart. Please don't call me a fuck, fucker, fuck stick, fuck head, fucking fucker. This is not reasonable and trust me I find you to be a very very "dull" person at that point.
