I'm accepting Art for being Art and no amount of tangling with him is going to change

I agree, and I'm not trying to change him, either. Apparently, his wife and this board have accepted his unorthodox views, but that doesn't mean I must. And I don't.

I'm not even "tangling" with him. It's his perception that anyone who doesn't agree with him is trying to drive him insane. I can't do anything about that. He's insane or not of his own volition.

People challenge me all the time: What truly caused the housing bust? Is life insurance actually an investment? Is flaxseed oil really an important nutrient?

You don't hear me complaining. I welcome intelligent challenges to my perceptions about life.
