"Good points. I really don't have anything in the way of first-hand knowledge on the subject. My observations on the Mt. Hood glacier shrinking over the past 35 years (mostly in the last 10) can easily be dismissed as anecdotal, local, and a…"
"Intelligent conversations on this subject are almost as impossible to have as with religion or politics. You believe exactly what suits you, as does your son; and no amount of facts pro or con are likely to change that. Your…"
"Seeing as how you are far more open minded than he is and much more intellectual I doubt the two of you can ever come to any sort of understanding. If he listens to talk radio he probably isn't capable of having an intelligent conversation."

Thank you for the welcome to the left handers group I hope to contribute a bit, and also see what is posted. I am very busy with my masters degree so contribution may be limited. But my grandma, father, and I were all left handers. When I was a kid my kindergarten teacher was still from the left is sin category and in class forced me to use my right hand and then at home my parents forced me to write left handed, from this my handwriting has become atrocious. But my grandma, and I wish I knew what it was belonged to a left handed society, they would send out a magazine or newspaper with left handed facts and stuff of that nature from it she told me that there was only one left handed president to serve more than one term in office and I do believe that is or was Bill Clinton.
Again thanks for the welcome and I cant wait till I get more time to check it out.

"I've never gone vegan, but conventional wisdom is you keep up the protein with beans.
I'll leave that alone, since that's all I have to say. I will say a few things that my wife and I do during Lent (vegetarian but not vegan):…"
