    I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this specific challenge plus it really does give me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of what I have seen, I just simply hope when the actual opinions pile on that people stay on point and in no way embark upon a soap box of the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this excellent piece and whilst I can not really go along with it in totality, I regard the point of view.
