Nevertheless, I am not any more fond of these displays than of some of the others I mentioned.

It's so good of you to keep me grounded in reality Ha. It can be so hard sometimes to live in the fairy tale that is my life.

I certainly did not mean to offend you FIREdreamer, and I am sorry that my comment did offend. In fact, my post had nothing to do with yours. It was pretty well grounded in current downtown Seattle reality, that's all.

Anyway, if only one POV is allowed, why bother with this forum? Each of us could just write essays for ourselves, or perhaps to be shared with our spouses and SOs.

As far as intimidation is concerned, up until now at least, the people who take up the entire sidewalk and make me walk into the street to pass by have not been wearing their sixguns.
