Hey Pat West and Dan Shores - Rhys just called Mark Hartless a name. Should he be "kicked off this forum"? If not, why?

Oh, c'mon Mark. Climb off your high horse and get in touch with your inner Gaia, you heartless bastard.
The world champs, anyone? Looks like they've finally gotten their act together after the Percy Harvin fiasco, & the Legion of Boom is finally healthy & playing well. Plus, Russell Wilson. Pretty long odds against a repeat, but they seem to be putting it together at the right time.
With so many of our brick & mortars geared for the tourist trade, it's difficult to take the "shop locally" claptrap seriously. A couple days before xmas a few years ago, I realized I'd forgotten to get something for an elderly friend. She has a sweet tooth, so I figured an assortment from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory would do the trick.
I rolled onto Lincoln just before 10AM, and at least half the retailers were closed, including both candy stores. RMCF didn't open until 11AM. That may work for the lawyer visiting from Dallas, but it's tough on the worker bees.
I'll continue to shop online, and not feel a twinge of guilt about it.
Nope, that about covers it. For now. Thanks for asking, though.
There's another possibility that's just occurred to me: you don't actually believe that name calling "should get you kicked off this forum." In which case, you're nothing more than a duplicitous hack.
"Name calling is against the posting rules and should get you kicked off this forum."
That is not an ambiguous statement. If you had the courage of your stated convictions, you would not pretend that you need to rely on anyone other than yourself to enforce those convictions. That lack of courage=cowardice. That you engage in the same conduct you've condemned=hypocrisy.
Tim Russert compiled an amazing book called Wisdom of Our Fathers: Lessons and Letters from Daughters and Sons. One woman wrote about how her dad was a plumber who busted his tail to keep her enrolled in a private school where most of the kids were the product of white collar professionals, and she felt intimidated & perhaps even a little ashamed.
One evening she received a frantic call from a classmate: one of their upstairs bathrooms had a backed up toilet and it's a total disaster, can your dad help? She & her dad went over, and the problem was resolved in less than an hour. As they were walking back to his truck he winked at her and said "That's one dumb fu@%in' lawyer."
She never stressed over her dad's job again.
