I think that the dialogue is open with some people hear and I've noticed some people's position change somewhat. A good example is the exchange between Ronnie and myself, where I think each of us has fine-tuned our positions quite a bit. People like you who give intelligent posts give food for thought to others. They do listen, otherwise they wouldn't bother to respond. If you manage to pry somebody's eyes open just a little bit, and learn something yourself in the meantime, yes it's worth it. keep up the fine posting.
