Don wholeheartedly agrees with this, however . . .

I too understand.  This place (bay area) is a little like the Balkans 
sometimes or maybe more like "Gangs of New York" with BMW's.  The sharp 
economic divide, combined with the overpopulation, xenophobia, and 
covert racism that festers below the surface here can really do a 
number on your attitude.   Plus it's been hot as hell here lately. 
Still courtesy and care (especially with emails) are best.  I'm not 
sure why I wrote this except to say that while I disagree with what 
happened, I know it didn't come from some emotionally unstable 

Regards to all
