"Severed, I admire your writing very much. There's no one else on the blogs that have your in-depth knowledge of the topics, is able to present it in a logical and unbiased manner and doesn't indulge in the kind of petty insult trading (like I do, LOL), that has become as big a part of the dialog as political views.
