ok. I get it. In other words, behave as a beach bum, and you'll be liked very widely. Not applicable to Kingston. Perhaps to the outer areas but not to Kingston--see the posts of Black Knight, AKA Mayor James Sottile. But agreed in that I didn't try to experience quite his level of ineffectiveness and THEN see how he reacts as a fellow traveller in ineffectiveness. I suffer, according to him from the proactive problem of "trying to cure the world." Or is this deficiency "trying to be heard"? We're not sure which it is, and Hizzoner ain't sure either....guess he's a mixture of effectiveness and ineffectiveness just like most people, who mix the two traits and then...pick and choose what they don't like in other people. Better, I agree, to go all the way with one or the other approach...and then you are so much more at peace with the rest of the world, the ones you don't agree with you can just snub your nose at without paying any attention to, while the ones you agree with is an easy buddy relationship... What an interesting experiment before me--thank you.
