Slobodan's right. I've been in correspondence with Rob since he dropped off, and I'd very much like to see him back, but I think he decided trying to discuss anything, including photographs, with the kind of posters who were rattling their heads in "Mitt Romney's Halo," was pretty futile. I tend to agree. On the other hand, I'm sure I can attribute at least some of what I saw to youthful inexperience. I think Churchill had it right: ""If you're not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart and if you're not a conservative at thirty, you have no brain." So take a look at that scale and see where you fall.
Sorry Russ....no cigar. If he was unhappy with one thread then he can ignore it and engage in other threads. Rob can certainly make his point of view therefore if he gives it he has to take it? Over 7000 posts so he knows the score. Russ where are you on the scale? I don't think you are a shrinking violet and should have a look in the mirror. I will leave it at that for the sake of harmony.
