We need you as you are."

I disagree. We need people who will listen to what the others are saying.
In my opinion (perhaps I'm mistaken) Michael is as bad as Andre in hearing
only what he wants to hear (which is often not the true point), apparently so
he can flame an author and show everyone how intelligent he (thinks) he is.

I'm not saying Andre and Michael aren't intelligent in some way. But I don't
believe true intelligence can (should?) be so inflexible as these two appear
to be.

BTW, I'm taking Michael's advice and not reading Andre's responses anymore.
I'm also adding Michael to the list.

Karen, Susan, Joan, Greg, and a host of others too numerous to
mention--please don't disappear; you are the people who seem to have
something thoughtful to say.
