"I must have missed all the excitement while I was moving to Olympia. As far as being PC, there are times I'm certain I fail. I just try to make sure to own up to it. I think that makes a difference. It can be easy to be a jerk, but it does take…"

"I've watched these arguments from afar and cannot help but wonder what the point is of arguing with someone who makes up "facts", cannot have a discussion without calling people names, and refuses to have a normal adult interaction."
