Well, we know who the first 1,100 people the government is going after!

My answer:

blanco5,
Just WHO do you think the government would send?

I can't even remember who said this but it always stuck:
"Telling someone they're about to step on a landmine isn't a threat. It's simply good manners."

Still, while I'm appreciative of the very affirming nature of the reaction to the letter, I hope to see at least an equal amount of focus amongst those venues on the specific recommendations made - because it is a communication that also furthers a dialogue IF the other party is truly willing to have one - containing another side of what an actual conversation would be. As Clint Eastwood said to the chair, "No, you shut up for now, it's my turn to talk."

If not, then the last thing they hear under their foot may be 'click'...
