Here I go again.....when someone comes at me with a 2x4, I'm not listening....I'm on the defense. When I read some of your postings, I definitely perceive you as having a 2x4 in hand. Recently, when you responded to a posting of mine, you stepped back and reasoned with me. Then I listened....no 2x4. That's discourse. Try hiding your 2x4 next time you want a discourse with someone.
(This has been especially revealed to me in dealing with students' parents.)
Love you, and Denise, and Molly,
