Sure, Ron... it's just a funny song. Look around you, these are serious issues. If Christine can be motivated to write a song like this, I'm certainly entitled to respond to it as I do, as you are. My reaction is honest. When humor is a weapon, to be used against others... you can count me out. It feels base and unproductive to me. Should I politely laugh? Ha Ha?

Believe me... it would be no considerable challenge for me to put people down for laughs... and money. I'd rather believe in the people around me. It's a whole new approach.

After long witnessing the side effects of malicious laughter, up close and personal, I'm not so sure it's all that productive.

ttr, lifting himslf out of the political current, muddy and soaked from head to foot, and laughing hard of his own foolishness...
