I also genuinely would like anyone's feed back regarding the second question that comes in this two part follow-up.

But I think both sides can gain many good things from dialog even if we don't come to agree with each other, and I've a funny notion that we can do it without trying to intentionally incite each other. Thank you all again for your time and thought and feed back. I hope you don't see this as a waste of time. The story I reference--
