Dear Loquacious Lyndi,<quoted text>
You thought this comment was "ranting away?"

Looked like a plain old sentence to me.

"Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues." – Proverbs
"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt." Lincoln?
"It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt." Twain?
"It is better to keep one’s mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt." Confucious?
Pick the one you like, but please do me a favor. The next time you take a stab at posting a fairly well known phrase to a group of fairly well read people, try to stick as close as you can to the original without the liberal twist. You have a habit of inserting the word "rant" when you're uncomfortable with the content of an opposing view and instead of addressing the content, you try instead to get them off the topic and off balance by pretending their delivery was a -----> rant.
Don't thank me. It was no trouble at all.
And to quote the spiritual poets in your life, Simon and Garfunkel, just think of me as your little bridge over troubled waters who's here to remind you that you are indeed a .....rock.
Thanks for your warm missive. My reference to "rant" was to your lengthy post, not the little one you cited. The definition of the word fits your post to a T.
I'm disappointed that you continue to dodge my questions. You continue to drop in my estimation by demonstrating intellectual dishonesty. Shame on you.:(
Your very well educated pal,
