When one declares oneself to be a conservative, one is not, unfortunately, thereupon visited by tongues of fire that leave one omniscient. The acceptance of a series of premises is just the beginning. After that, we need constantly to inform ourselves, to analyze and to think through our premises and their ramifications. We need to ponder, in the light of the evidence, the strengths and the weaknesses, the consistencies and the inconsistencies, the glory and the frailty of our position, week in and week out. Otherwise, we will not hold our own in a world where informed dedication, not just dedication, is necessary for survival and growth.

My most humble and sincere apologies! I was actually testing the chat feature tonight when someone popped in the room, and then while we were chatting two others did too! There was actually no intent to begin it, but since we were already there and I needed to learn to use it, we goofed off for an hour or two.

Jenn and I are in the midst of discussing a weekly chat perhaps, and all the details that go with it, i.e. do we do a topic, open forums, etc.

Stay tuned, we toldyou things would be exciting and you have to be flexible til the kinks are worked out!

But, the best part of your comment is that you are interested...
