Finally, dialogue without diatribe
I have been so frustrated by the emotional ranting in the op-ed writing at the NYTimes that I almost didn't follow the blogginghead link. What a wonderful surprise! Talking heads that actually listen to one another, ideas that usually are spat across tables by crazed adherents quietly being discussed by intelligent and thoughtful people. I had given up hope that such an experience was possible. The last time I tried to discuss some of these ideas with people of the opposite belief system from my own I came away covered with bitterness and spittle. Don't mind me, please keep talking. I'm just going to sit here quietly and try and learn something.
