Some people have more class than others. I OTOH, have no class at
all, and would have ripped into you...not for your opinion (you know

my stuff publicly basing on subjective opinion. Where's the facts,
the justifications, the objective reasoning?

But she still remembers your comments every time she sees you...just
has the class to not let it get in the way.
