Note to Anon

It's a shame that such well thought-out and worded posts can't (or won't) be posted here. There is, of course, a part of me which would like nothing better than to post the comments I've recently received. But the better part of valor is always discretion - as I assume you are all aware - since your refusal to comment under your own names while being perfectly willing to allow others (such as myself) to take the heat for broadcasting your ideas and opinions speaks volumes of your own courage and your own fears.

This is not to say that I disagree with them - or with your rights to vocalize them. Just not in my playground and just not under the broad cloak of "anonymous."

I would, of course, appreciate being able to correspond with you guys since apparently we share many of the same views even if we don't agree on how and/or where to best express them. These one-sided conversations leave me feeling just a bit out-of-sorts and irritated. How can I respond to your charges if I don't know who or where you are?

Besides, if you're truly serious, how on earth do you expect that the "problem" can be addressed if we all choose to remain anonymous? There's strength (and safety, if any one's afraid) in numbers, yanno?

As for me, I walk the narrow line because it seems the kindest and wisest thing to do.

Convince me otherwise.

Fair enough, I appreciate your response and I will respect your privacy, but you have to understand that there is nothing I can do to help you at this point. I have no means of communicating with you.
