[to jochicago's lengthy post]

This is a great post. I shall file this away and use it if I even need to present an argument. It's all common sense, of course, but rarely have I seen this expressed so clearly. I doubt it'll change theog's opinions, but it would be nice to think it might give him pause for thought.

Once upon a time I'd wonder if theog has a beard, but as everyone has a beard nowadays it seems too much of a safe bet.

Is it just coincidence that the increase in the number of beards coincides with the increase in political madness in the world? I must check jochicago's post before drawing any bold conclusion.
