: : Wasn't it great at Gathering talking about politics and such? Wow! There we were at a picnic table with four different countries represented, talking about American presidents. Ohmygosh! Who made THAT happen, HMMMMM? Thanks again, Rich and Elaine for a wonderful experience!

: That evening is certainly one of my best memories! Thanks for reminding me.
Yes, and just as amazing is this discussion. I have not cruised a lot of internet boards and chat rooms, but this is the only one I have ever seen that could talk about such sensitive issues and not degenerate immediately into name calling and rancor. Sure, a nerve is touched here and there. A comment may hit close to home and the speaker isnt even aware of it. But for the most part serious issues and controversial topics are addressed with remarkable intelligence and respect. Most other boards would have gone into a flames war after the first post or two.
Give yourself a big hand folks. You deserve it.
