PS in email from Iceland says "You suck."

A webmaster in Iceland thinks I suck.

Well, he might be right. But, I hate this crap.

Earlier today I send a nicer, yet still scolding email, to Rev. Ricky Burgess of Pgh City Council. He was able to lead a prayer at the start of today's city council meeting and prayed for "both candidates" for US President. Shame, shame, shame.

My reply:


Mine is a wake up call to people who knew what they were doing and
still decided by their deeds to do the wrong things.

Life for all will be better when others do not hi-jack votes and that
process that hinges upon fairness. You fumble your responsibility of a
democratic exercise. You choose to take on the effort yourself, fine.
Then you hurt by design by exclusion.

We've got a facist convention just ended. The wake up call to them
isn't getting through. You can be leverage. But, you choose to be
