    Scott, I explained in an earlier email why I challenged the basis of Joe's expressions re. Iraq. No need to repeat myself here.

    This is a list on memetics, and our interest here is in how and why people form their opinions, disseminate them, and process those of others. Thus: the issues I focus on of knowledge, learning, queries, opinionizing, argumentations, authority, and sources of information.

    What we conclude here about Iraq, per se, is of no consequence. If debate about Iraq is desired, there are other public fora for that. Not, I should add, that many of them seem to be doing it well. I do believe that this list shows an uncommon and wonderful amount of learning, for all the snarling that we sometimes engage in.

    Cheers, Lawry

    You were implying Joe has no depth on Iraq where you're an expert. Joe seems to know what he's talking about, even if I'm not in total agreement with him. He's giving his POV on a complex issue. You were rubbing his nose in it.

    Maybe you could offer a *viable* alternative to the Bush posse? I'm all ears.
