Hi, and thanks for that - Yeah, I just wanted to point out who is the hand, and who is the sock monkey, in that equation. Have a great day!

Maybe one day I'll get there too. Something to point out, about Curtis, Ann -- Rather than an expression of his social flexibility and capacity to entertain multiple points of view, Curtis enjoys Barry's anti-social nature, and exploits it fully. This way, he enjoys the vicarious pleasure of watching Barry insult and abuse others endlessly, and at the same time, tries to ensure by his uber reasonableness, and kumbaya attitude, that none of the stink gets on him, personally. Curtis is Barry's puppet-master. You may very well be right Mac, because you tend to have a very insightful nature and I, more often than not, find your analyses extremely sophisticated. When I log on to FFL I always start at the bottom (oldest) post and read up answering certain posts as I go and moving past others. As I was quickly scrolling down from the top today I glimpsed some post from bawee who seems to address my personal post to Curtis. I haven't read it yet but I will, at least some of it. From the little I saw it appears rather unkind and very typical of bawee. Let's see what anyone does with this, if anything (although I see Steve made some remarks afterwards). I think you and Judy are on a similar page when it comes to Curtis but I don't always choose to deal with all the machinations that go on here so sometimes I simply find the parts of a person I enjoy or appreciate the most and speak to those. There are definite traits about Curtis that I admire (his music and his teaching) and as for whatever else might be going on I'm not in a position to try and change it. Whatever it is Curtis either sees or is using bawee for that is between them and is not somewhere I need to go.
