I'm hopping on my bike to climb a mountain right now, maybe I'll finish my thoughts later. But yes, I think you are an oral magician. And to a lawyer, that is a compliment.
Oh, one last thing before I leave on my ride. I know four people that have seen UFO's clearly right in front of them. The US Navy has even come out and said they are real. Yet I would never try to discredit someone for not taking the subject seriously. IOW, we believe and live our lives as we wish. And there are those who get paid to make us look like fools in any aspect of our lives.
