From the gentleman (and this time I’m not being sarcastic) who wrote to me earlier:
I’m sorry I acted the way I did in the email. It was wrong of me and only hope
you accept my apologies. Behaving the way I did shows me in a pretty bad
Some of us have built some pretty strong pre-conceived ideas about issues and
when the opposite argument turns up which in your case seems well-thought out
I have to offer my grudging admiration. In my job, rigidity means an early
grave career wise at least.
Case in point- Climate change.
I spent some time reading your stuff fairly extensively and I have to say you
make a pretty good case that in fact it may be occurring. You seem to be doing
a better job than most to at least be getting to the truth.
How to solve problems like climate-change, well that’s for another day or
I did spend time reading your blog. You are a very amusing, interesting
individual. I only wish I was 1/2 as bright as you seem. And the kids are
lucky to have you as a teacher it seems. I take the other stuff back as well
as you seem to be able to do 30 things at at one time! Wish I had that gift.
As someone who believes in the right-wing side of politics, I particularly
enjoyed the thrashing you give to Hugh Morgan and his buddies. They sure
deserve it! I know, at least I followed closely Morgan’s behavior as CEO and
it was an absolute disgrace. If he and his admirers are the leaders of the
right wing movement we have a problem! You can ask why, as it was on the public
record. However some of it isn’t. The guy hired himself a speechwriter at
company expense!! There are many more issues I have with the establishment
right, but I won’t go into them as they are too lengthy.
One thing you have done for me is to prove I ought to stay in my own paddock
and not veer off into unknown pastures as it seems I don’t really have that
much to offer.
So good luck and hope all goes well for you.
