Jon, the way I see it, the architects of a problem and their enablers are usually the people most qualified to solve it. I'm not saying there is a problem, however. There's just some delayed success and what I suspect is a deliberate failure to thrive on the part of the beneficiaries of the delayed success. You, as a member of the so-called anti-war left, may have obstructed the success, possibly unwittingly, though maliciously nevertheless.

I know you think you mean well when you post these little advisories, but I wonder if you've ever stopped to consider how much harm you do to the staff of the enablers and architects of the problem, which is not a problem, when you set them up to field the calls of constituents.
