I thought this was a simple, clear and quick statement of a generalized, forward-looking, self-reliance. It is not pontificating. Do I like to eat a small piece of cherry pie every now and then ? Sure. It is a nice treat in life. It is not the answer to any big question or a tour de force of imagination but it is a nice slice of cherry pie. Also your response was quite restrained and sounded like a man who tries to write good stuff and is frankly miffed that his best stuff is like skipping solitary stones across the pond while this piece of cherry pie hit the pond’s surface like a boulder tossed down from Olympus. You demarcated your position well, Mr. Girard. Maybe we will see something of yours in the new publication being started in the next few hours or days.
