Glad to hear it. I have to admit I never got to know many of the "locals" when I
lived there, but I had a companion from Provo, and he'd had no idea. That just
goes to show you the "power" of anecdotal statistics, I guess.

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the
worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly
debated…To think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was
a coward; any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly
character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant that one was
totally unfitted for action.” – Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by
Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars”
