Would this board be responsible if

JH goes ?
I mean, some of you, you know who you are, have suggested and in fact even insisted he take the same route as this young man below. The setting is different yet the same.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I don't get the feeling that Jayhawk would do harm to himself based on BWOT. He seems rather inner directed. I think that's a good thing.

Jay is a good guy, he just sees things in a different way than some of us do.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.
