Subject: RE: Threads on the meaning of Folk
This is a grand discussion---one trhat we do get somewhat tired of---but we keep on coming back in spite of our protests that we, truly, intend to never again post to a thread like this. I can sure see that I have some need to say what I think on the topic. No letter to the editor of any magazine would get all around the world so quickly and to so many who care about the specifics of our topics. And I really do enjoy reading all the strongly held opinions of so many people I truly respect---even the folks I don't necessarily agree with. Thanks for putting up with my instincts that I put forth as truth way too often. They're just opinions, after all, and not anything carved in stone. Even rocks and diamonds eventually wear away. Right now I'm just pretty thankful to be able to be a part of a damn good discussion via all of these threads where we have had all these chances to rehash, rethink, adopt and adapt our too certain pronouncements. And thanks to Max for providing this site--this forum--this place to form my opinions by publicly making a fool of myself on occasion, but hopefully, not too often.
