It’s remarkable how you can almost predict someone’s position on an issue just from the tone and decibel level of someone’s voice.  This poor guy suffers the same disease as I by partaking in attempts at reasonable discussion with people for whom reason doesn’t even count.  How do I justify it?  An impressionable 12-year-old might happen on the discussion.  Granted, we all resort to passive-aggressive sarcasm.  I mean, at least it’s funny, right?  I know it’s funny when I laugh.
