Whatever.

I'll never forget the time in 2007 when one of my staff invited me and some other folks to a get together in his new home, a very nice place in a close-in D.C. suburb. At one point, he quipped to me that pretty soon he and his wife would have a house nicer than mine. I just replied, "Let's hope so," knowing full and well that they were just one catastrophe away from going from living the Life of Riley to barely if at all being able to make ends meet. I just hoped for their sake that disaster didn't happen. Then 2010 came along and he and his wife were selling off all sorts of belongings, including that house, at "fire sale" prices.

It seems as though people are no less willing to be evil or stupid with their own lives than they are with other people's lives. Where has integrity and conscience gone?

All the best.
Tony, let me use this space to thank you for your posts about the "Confederate Flag". I am interested in history as much as in cars, sports, women and whiskey) and here I see another good info from you, now about the Greek issue. Always great to see people with balanced position whatever sensitive the matter is. Cold minds save from chaos) You sound an expert, but OK it doesn't matter.
Thanks again / All the best.

You're welcome. Thank you too for the kind words.

I'm an expert on some topics, but those topics haven't, that I know of, come up on B-post.

All the best.
