Okay - this thread is closed.
Differences in opinions are perfectly acceptable - but trying to change someone else's opinion about anything is a fruitless endeavor.
We agree to respect one another's opinions here. We also agree not to draw conclusions about other people based upon what they say, nor to characterize people in derogatory terms just because we may disagree with what they say or their opinions.
When a person is able to say "I stand corrected." they look a whole lot smarter than if they continue to defend a weak point. But it also doesn't help to continue to push someone to admit they were wrong if they don't want to say it.
Bottom line - what did we learn here? Next to nothing - and that is my point.
Peace and love - children of the '70s!
