My Locale Kanto Plain, Japan
About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good. It's why it's always so hard to come back down. And why, with the odor of days imprinted in synthetics, my coming back down is hard for others, too!

Re: Not anti
I'm sorry, Miguel, but I have to disagree. I actually agree with you, Tom. I was trying to be diplomatic and not step on toes here. For me it is just not worth it getting riled up and starti...

Re: Not anti
Pretty narrow view for a pro people person you have there. I'd argue all those that persecuted the Jews throughout history are also to blame. You can toss in the Arabs and Persians too. I sh...

Re: Valid combatant targets @ Dean
Is not the reverse true of Japan as well? I think at one time, yes. But not anymore, at least not among almost every young Asian I've met and known. Japan has become "the" place to...

Re: Valid combatant targets @ Dean
I thought you knew me better than that. Yes, Tom, I do, and I didn't make the extra effort needed to make that clear, so I'm sorry for the way I worded things. Still, these discussio...

These are comments I made in the forum, just added here for easy reference: I just got back from a three day walk with the One yesterday. It was great, just what I wanted. It's still very much ...
