    Ah, Marvin. You've moved closer to Mr. franco and you don't even see it.

    Pendulum swings are inevitable... All sorts of laws at work... Don't fight it, just feel the breeze as you swing...

    Somehow Greta, I think you have just insulted me without trying. I process information, some get's higher marks because of it's sourcing, that's how I come to believe as I do.

    This week I have read INC, Wired, 3 Outdoor magazines, Forbes, Bugle, Fortune, National Review, CATO newsletter, Freedom Foundation newsletter, the Capital Press (a farm magazine), a Grisham Book, All our local newsparers, plus assorted articles on the web, Sunset, Seattle Met, & Retriever News. There is value in all of these publications, the ability to sort out that value is another story. I do this most weeks so have a different world than most.

    There was a point in time when I thought a visit & lunch with Franco when we do our trip around the country would be nice - that is no longer in the itinerary, though the trip is.

    A few years back, when AT&T Universal still had a part of the credit card market we had a run in with them. I did not feel that had advanced our interests as a customer in a dispute, which we do rarely, probably because we don't use the card much. In closing I told the guy that we would be sending our cut up card to them with the final bill & would find someone else to do business with. About a week later I get a call asking me to reconsider & when I wouldn't they offered to give me a credit of all the money they had made from us - a little over $800, I told them that their lack of integrity was not something that had a price & refused the offer. As much as I like good food, one of the vices of a healthy lifestyle, I will pass the opportunity to visit with Franco.

    Around our house I do most of the arguing with outsiders as that's where my interests are, but when the politico's need calling my wife does it, it's comical to listen to someone who is not a political junkie work the phone. Sometimes not having all the info in your processor is an effective tool in a discussion. My wife ran our small business so she has a different mind set than most .
