LOL! Oh, you are a nasty one, Michael... Forgive him for that, Dewey. :-)

McGrath, yes of course there are some bastards out there. Definitely. I prefer not to fixate on them too much, though. I think what it was you were indicating in your original statement was assertiveness more than positive thinking. Assertiveness in itself can be a good thing, as long as it isn't underpinned by habitual fear or hostility, masquerading as an independent mind defending itself.

Not that I'm accusing you of that. I'm just doing a philosophical analysis of possible interpretations of that one statement you made. You don't strike me as a particularly negative individual. Rather the contrary, in fact.
