We all have our reputations and public perceptions, most of us are in a real sense willing to find compromise or comity. Problem is as with most of us men, we refuse to publicly say we have fault.
Quietly without mud tossing and insults a few of us have been tossing about ideas in private emails. I wish I was allowed to divulge the contents of our private emails. I am learning that there is another viewpoint other than mine. That viewpoint at times might be from a vantage that is better than mine. In our private correspondence I have the ability to ponder that idea or other viewpoint without publicly defending my own.
One of these days if my new mates allow, I might put up the dialog on line. You might be surprised at who has some good ideas.
