I thought that keeping sentences as short as possible was the way people preferred it around here.  kathyp; I think I've just been accused of imitating the majority, no?  Of course, YOU never ramble or accuse anyone of anything….right?  And always explain things so 'everyone' understands…….?

I think a mirror could be helpful…... :-D 

I;d much rather explain myself with several thousand words rather than a few, but that 'seems to go no where' with this crowd as well.

Actually there are many followers of Ms Rand who follow her words to the point of kookiness.  I've dealt with them my entire life.

it's a good way for people to stop reading what you have posted OR for you to say a lot with no meaning.

probably true for a lot of public figures and writers.  hardly her fault.
