"I couldn't agree with Saxon more. Whatever failures your Dad had, they are still teaching moments. If you can put the resentment of youth aside and forgive (accept) his failures as 'part of life', you can still learn from his…"
"At nineteen, life gives a young man like you all kinds of choices. Like I told my three boys. Make your choices as best you can - and accept responsibility for the outcome - whatever happens. To me, that's the cutting edge of an adult."
"Thanks Titus. You are correct. His name was Harvey Mansfield. I overlooked that when I typed it too fast.I found the book fascinating simply because he did quote from so many resources. You know he's not BS'ing and making something up.…"
"Gotta take a whack at something you quoted or asked: "Is it even true that men are less language oriented than women?"
One of the dominant feminist stereotypes is that 'women are better at communicating than men.' But let's…"
"Hey Clint! The tag caught my curiosity. Just skimmed over it, since I'm prressed for time at the moment. Two remarks:1) Get a copy of Dr. Henry Mansfield's book "Manliness". It is well researched and very insightful.2) The…"

"For the money, I would have to weigh in with a couple of guys who suggested nice, but comfortable loafers. Loafers work year round. Nice looking ones can be matched up with a pair of slacks and a tie for a dress up occassion."
