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.


Surely, you believe in something or enjoy something that is not in the mainstream of things....we all do. I have my animal interests and other things, I've been on the wild side, my addictions and all that.....and I dare say, some folks on here have taken issue with those things and don't agree at all. THat's fine, some of y'all can make me scratch my head and wonder but that's life. I still love y'all, the regulars that is, not those foreigners that invade the room from time to time. We don't have to argue to change each other though, it doesn't work and causes heartache in the long run.
