Concerning recent threads about how this teacher or that teacher is the best thing in the world and how we should just believe that our stuff is lower than whale dung by comparison... We all think that whatever we do is the best thing around. If it weren't we'd switch to something else. Or at least it's what best suits our needs and is available within the distance we're willing to travel. I respect your right to your opinion. You respect my right to mine. That doesn't mean that either of us has to respect the particular beliefs or think they're anything more than untreated effluent. And it particularly doesn't mean that a person can make outrageous claims and not expect them to be challenged. Since we're civilized people those challenges are on the level of facts and reason. If we lived in another time and place they would be more along the lines of "Fill your hand!"
