Geez - someone posted about getting this thread back on track.
Good suggestion. I do take exception to the comment of "keeping Americans at each other throats". Someone is hanging out in the wrong 'hood.

I travel fairly extensively and in the last several years have been semi-astounded at the rapport exhibited in airports, malls and even supermarkets. I think I have heard "excuse me", "you go ahead" and "let me help you with that" more in the past several years than in the past 20. I attributed some to the pulling together after 9/11 when we were made more aware of our vulnerability. AND, I think the fact we have a more average citizen in the White House, like him or not, as opposed to a polished politician has a small effect, perhaps not recognized by many.

Having been involved in probing a persons Psyche, I would find it impossible to determine a persons' mental stability based on a few posts made on any web page, be it an off-topic blues message board or one of the more professional mental health sites. The WWW is both a wonderful and a dismal source of information. Unless it is a substantiated source, i.e., Universities and Encycloypedias, take it with the proverbial grain of salt.

Remember Newsweek and their "Koran gate"?
