Hey, has anyone heard from JE? Did he depart ala MRTIKKET?

And leaving or not is a personal choice. I agree the election results have made the bulk of the political discussion nothing but childish trash talking - kind of like engaging in arguments with lots of Rush Limbaughs.

There was a time when the GOP wasn't overtaken with such a peculiarly ugly political philosophy, and discussions were carried out with some interest in the other side's argument. That time has evaporated. The present Rush Limbaugh led political party is what is left. Sad.

Thanks. It's good to know that my effort was not without merit.
