what a great point of view. thanks for blowing up my brain (again!)

Miller's Law would come in handy here:

In order to understand what another person is saying, you must:

1. assume it is true and
2. try to imagine what it could be true of."

(Suzette Haden Elgin on Miller's Law; [who writes] : "Chronic communication breakdown happens when we don't realize the source of a problem is language and we take it for granted that the problem is caused by a person""


At least people had a sense of humor about it when I wrote in the church newsletter that Ash Wednesday would be on Tuesday.

A good proofreader is worth his or her weight in chocolate. GOOD chocolate!
