Note: In several recent posts and replies to emails and posts I responded to folks whose political and social views differ from mine. In some of those instances I responded with arrogance and often biting sarcasm.
A former classmate of mine I’ve known since elementary school is a liberal. Karen married one and I think he converted her. She and I have exchanged pleasantries and a few political barbs on our Facebook wall posts. Some of the exchanges have grown a bit spicy. She calls me a far-right columnist and I call her a bleeding-heart liberal extremist.
