Hey, Doc, so sorry you had to go through that. That's the main reason I dn't post anything on other platforms. It's pretty ugly out there. As you requested, I will go to your original piece (which I hadn't yet seen) and leap into the fray, er, I mean, discuss your story's main points. (And BTW, isn't "taking the knee" related to "bending the knee" in some way, showing the highest respect?) More to come. Thanks! You're brave, courageous, and bold! ... long live your fame, long live your glory, and long may your story be told! (Where does that hark from? Wyatt Earp or something?) Anyhoo. Keep on keeping on. We need reasonable people like you to speak your mind. :D
