Re: Re: Re: Separate Policies

Ah Randall, I fear you took me literally. No, my point was we all, in
our own
ways, do something that someone considers "risky" or at least expensive.
It's
vaguely called "living" and we're all in it together. Better we indulge
each other's
humanity, in the philosophical knowlege that it all evens out, than
succomb to
"the narcissism of small differences."
