I think you are right on point Katy Preen. I wrote this after several rounds with just such a man. I only kept replying because I couldn’t stand to see his totally inaccurate assertions left unchallenged. I probably wasted far too much time there, but sometimes a situation like that is the mental cauldron that helps me formulate a story, so I guess it’s all good — all except for the truly misguided man……

I didn’t change his mind, but maybe somebody else reading what we’ve written will get a clearer sense of things. And I did kind of enjoy the intellectual exercise, at least when it wasn’t completely disheartening and maddening.
