    The Power Of The Word

    I make it a point to be very conscientious of the way I go about saying or writing things to people.  Typically, when I write a comment I will read it over a couple of times afterwords and look for the "holes" in it.  Many people I comment on are total strangers to me...

    Can Not Believe How Stupid Some People Are.
