Thanks for taking it down a notch, Leaver. I see your point(s), and on health care I think we largely agree. It's just Berg that divides us, which would really make his day. I happen to think he's a pretty good writer, and I like him personally, not that that matters, Certainly we have over the years published leftist perspectives that were less polished, but that generally did not prompt such indignant reactions.
You'll be happy to know I think you're a pretty good writer too. You should consider doing an occasional column for us. If only you were more conservative!
