Thanks Ana Frusinoiu! As I’ve said, I’m not quite sure why I hung in with this particular conversations for quite so long. I tried to walk away from it a couple of times but I kept feeling drawn back into it for some reason. I follow my intuitive sense, and that’s where it led me, for whatever reason.

Perhaps it was that “talking” about all of that helped me to put together two new stories, one on the meaning of “innocent until proven guilty” and one about how we know if someone is lying.

Occasionally these kinds of conversations actually do end up building bridges of sorts and I end up as kind of frenemies with the guy. It’s rare, but it does happen and it’s my intent to build bridges where I can. I don’t think that will happen in this case, although we had a brief moment there in the middle where I thought it might.

I appreciate you taking the time to comment however.
