[Hat, with texture: 2010]
Sometimes something I write prompts a reader to respond with more than a comment and asks that it be posted in a separate blog entry. With the usual conditions (I get to edit unduly inflammatory language, unseemly expressions, etc.) I am happy to oblige. This one is from my brother who I freely admit makes me look positively liberal in comparison. He has seen the world change even more than I and that counts for a lot.
