    I do enjoy the way you have presented this concern plus it does indeed give me a lot of fodder for consideration. However, coming from just what I have personally seen, I just trust when the remarks pile on that people today stay on point and not embark on a soap box involving the news of the day. Still, thank you for this exceptional point and although I can not necessarily concur with it in totality, I value your viewpoint. Ashley
