I Invite You
to scroll down and read some of the comments on my post titled "Repeat."
I've been receiving quite a few -- let's say -- controversial comments from two (or is it actually only one?) trolls who've been reading through my blog back two years. Initially, I posted a call-out and since you know I love an argument, I did just that. But then, I thought better and was advised by those whom I love and respect dearly that it's not worth it; life's too short, etc. So I deleted everything and didn't think anymore about it.
Until today. And you know what? I think Dave or Redlands is actually right that I shouldn't delete their comments -- at least not these initial ones. I think it's informative to show just what passes as "dialog" to some in our country. When I post something political, I always hope that I will get some reader who will have an opposite viewpoint and who will argue that viewpoint in a sane, reasoned way. I hope for a conversation, actually. It's happened before and I'm the better for it.
Sadly, what I get instead from these guys is what you can read if you scroll down to the post "Repeat." If you're afraid to comment, thinking that you, too, might get visits from Dave and Redlands, well -- you can always email me.
