Re: naive youth
I think there's an amount of naiveté or hypocrisy in her post, certainly. But there's also a strong, crazy, youthful, idealistic energy present. Something many of us might have left behi...

Re: Re: Attitude versus Altitude
I've understood this for a while. Not as a researcher, but as a parent. Tell a child that something will be trouble and they'll start worrying about it. Act like it's no big deal and...

Re: Re: MLD Patrol Shelter coverage?
