Hi Mario,

Yes, when it comes to my ability to think things out I am arrogant, but I don't think I claimed to be "the intellectual superior of everyone on the planet". I think you missed the line "(Neither do I believe anyone should.)"

And I may be very good at thinking things out; but, "good at communication?" Nope, that's not my forte! And finally, I never claimed "brilliance" of any kind. I am a very slow careful thinker, not brilliant at all. I just have a lot of confidence in my conclusions when I have thought something out carefully. And you should also have confidence in your ability to think things out otherwise, why would you try? Everybody should think!

My grandfather told me that sometimes you just have to knock a mule up the side of his head with a two by four to get his attention (for you animal rights freaks, I think it was a cliché, I don't think he ever hit anything with a two by four). I just got tired of Harv's meaningless drivel and he insists that I respond.

Have fun -- Dick
