We do Lisa. It seemed to me that you were putting down stories and
experiences as not being a very important form of discourse or argument.
'High blown' is southern vernacular for in the clouds
abstractions....<deadpan> Much on this list is to me very 'high blown'. I
really don't begrudge folks their abstractions, but do take offense to
notions that abstraction is a superior form of thinking or expression. It
may be a higher form, but hardly superior or more precise. And most
importantly we shall certainly survive our agreements....<grin>

with *respect* and love,
