    I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this particular matter and it does indeed provide us a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, coming from what precisely I have witnessed, I just trust as other opinions pack on that men and women remain on issue and in no way start on a soap box regarding the news du jour. Still, thank you for this outstanding piece and although I can not necessarily concur with this in totality, I respect your point of view.
