I'm jealous of the blogs that other people have. I'm jealous of the fact that they can so openly discuss what they think without fear of reprisal-- or more interestingly, without fear of lack of praise. It's in my nature to want people to pat me on the back and tell me I'm a good person. I'd like to change that nature. Normally I pride myself on not missing a point of view and forming an opinion after all choice alternatives have been evaluated. So obviously, when someone disagrees with what I say because they have a different way of looking at a specific idea, I get a bit upset. I can't do that anymore. I, Jean-Luc Picard*, will henceforth not be upset if you disagree with me. Please, I welcome it.
