Karis is apparently a very liberal and sensitive, sensitive, sensitive creature. I managed to upset his sensibilities so much that he accused me of going on a "vuvuzela drama queen rant"... whatever that is. I also find that people falling off the left side tend to insist on tolerance from others while being most intolerant themselves.
Thx, Ed. Yep, I've much more often seen the "tolerant" left get very angry and start name calling and such when people don't agree with them than the right does. Not all, of course, but more on the left than the right. Strange for people who call for tolerance.
