I can only hope you meant this as a joke.
Unlike the Bush administration, I take information about the reality of
the world around me into account when I make my decisions. "Aggressive"
doesn't mean "dogmatic". I find that it's important that you figure out
what the right course of action is and be clear and decisive about what
you are doing. I find the same to be true when I'm behind the wheels of
a car, as I found myself this weekend.
oh, and I found Turtle's message rather offensive as well. but I don't
expect to be posting to this list again. apologies for all of the
vitriol my original post has spawned.
