Dear List
 
I've given it quite a bit of thought.  Do I want to put up with this political garbage on this list until after November and maybe even beyond?
 
Do I want to be routinely characterized as an "attacker" for objecting to outrageous political comment?  Do I want to not object and passively let the vicious talk continue unabated?  I tried leaving the list once before because I didn't like the image of an attacker that I was being given.  And, response to political comments on this list always seems to be interpreted as attack. 
 
Gunnar's last bit of political provocation and absurdity did it.
 
It worked.
 
I responded and shouldn't have.  I have "attacked" Gunnar with intemperate language and baiting. 
 
Political correctness has prevailed.
 
I am gone
