    Some People Talk The Talk, But Don't Walk The Walk

    I'm sure you've met them too.  They talk a great story.  They are totally sympathetic to you and your concerns... they seem to be 100% (or nearly) compatible with you.  And I don't just mean in love... I mean in a lot of things... in your political or social beliefs... their...
