Thanks, Jerry. I do share in your fears and apprehensions.  And I earnestly pray for good sense to prevail over all passions.

Thanks for that link, CR.  I agree with the article that the greatest threat to our way of life is hatred and bigotry, no matter whether it comes from without or within.  What scares me most is how readily those who condemn hatred and bigotry do so in language that expresses, and further inflames, more hatred and bigotry.

No forum, I believe, can or should remain aloof to an issue that threatens the peace and well-being of our commonwealth. You'll kindly permit me to share, in this regard, what appears to me a most sensible piece of advice.
