Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Damn.

The Dude is so right, so, so right.

Doing the same thing with women and homosexuals...it's all about perception. Perception that somehow, someway, I'm really a have...not a have not.

Might be better to just perceive ourselves as human, and all in the same boat.

Thanks Elizabeth. That was excellent. I may steal and attribute.
