I don't seek to challenge your mastery of the facts, or the facts themselves. I have lived long enough to know that intelligent people can sometimes look at the same evidence and arrive at different, equally worthy conclusions.
I've also learned that one can weaken their own argument by taking the petulant approach. You might consider this, lest your valuable contributions get tossed in the bin of acrid words.
I would love to grace you with more of my wisdom but, since you "left the board" so long ago, I see there's no possibility of you reading or digesting what I humbly offer.
Still, I offer my insight as a disinterested party to whomever may still lurk these halls and may stumble across my inadequate words.
