Alex, I won't flame you, I don't like it and won't do it, but I do think you are taking a little harder stand on the subject than is called for.

Kendall reminded folks with this message that none of us will live forever, and there are things we could do before we go that would make US feel good, and would please OTHERS! No harm in that, as far as I can see. The message already motivated some mudcatters to respond, and that' ain't all bad in my opinion.

When I read that he bought himself a "triple decker" after depriving himself of ice cream for ten years, my first thought was, "right on!"

I just don't read that message as encouraging or promoting self-indulgence.
