    Of course, I think you are as wrong as can be.

    Yeah, but even in threads I start, someone brings up politics almost
    every damned time. Worse, it's always some inane leftist blather.

    There is way too much political talk in this forum IMHO. But, of
    course, if I'm the only one who finds it annoying then, yes, it's my
    problem and mine alone.

    I hate to filter people out just because they're seriously confused when
    it comes to politics. A lot of such people have much to offer when it
    comes to discussions about music.

    I'm an atheistic agnostic who gets annoyed with proselytizing Christians
    too. It's exactly the same kind of thing: unsolicited proselytizing by
    deluded people who think they know something more than the rest of us.

    Lord, please save me from people trying to save me.

    Me too; time to cook fajitas. I don't miss much about San
    Antonio, but it'd be worth the airfare just to taste an
    authentic tex-mex fajita after a chilaquile appetizer.
    California sells good, fresh cilantro in every grocery store,
    which goes a long way toward el sabor, but nobody sells fresh
    tortillas within 50 miles. I'm too busy these days to make my
    own very often, although I do budget time to whomp up the
    occasional 6 dozen tamales (at which point I become *very*
    popular). Cal-mex is not bad, but tex-mex is better, and the
    barbecue is orders of magnitude better.

    Sigh. If you want it your way you have to roll your own, and the
    raw materials simply aren't as good as what's available in
    Texas. Other than the cilantro; we do import some fine stuff
    here, and the weather supports a nice crop in the winter and
    spring. There's nothing like fresh-picked cilantro; damn,
    suddenly I'm starving.

    And I'd say you're deluded and wearing major league blinders.

    Defining positions as leftist just because they're to the left of
    yours...well, it just doesn't hold much water.

    And that's all I've got to say about that. Toodles.
