>Guy, First of all, you are NOT allowed to disagree with me. Nobody is
to disagree with me. Ever. ... Damn! When is that prescription refill
going to get here?!?
After years of reading your posts Dick ... I skipped the meds yesterday and
watched as my wife placed a call to the State Mental Hospital.
Wonderful institutions these State Mental Hospitals ... they even have
Internet connections and I can get my daily dose of Techwr-l.
>Second, I really don't think we're disagreeing. I was responding to
Jeanne's generalized derogation of generalists, not to Tamara's concern.
I think Tamara is right to be sensitive to the vibrations in her
antennae, and more investgation/sharper interviewing may be needed. But
I just didn't want Jeanne's remarks to go unchallenged.
As I wanted to rant about incompetency! So why not fabricate a pseudo
disagreement with ol' Dick? Worked great for me! Pressing the "send" button
eased my mind into a state of calm. You are a public service Dick, and I for
one want to express my gratitude.
