Good Morning Visionaries:

I'm just as fed with Donovan's tirades as anyone on this list.  (My 
favorite attack was the one on my house.  I can defend myself, but 
house cannot.)  Objecting to his insults and bad manners is one 
thing, but diagnosing his mental state complete with labels is 
another thing, even if he has given his own diagnosis.

I would very much like this thread to cease immediately.

"Truth is the summit of being; justice is the application of it to 
human affairs."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Abstract truth has no value unless it incarnates in human beings who 
represent it, by proving their readiness to die for it."
  --Mohandas Gandhi

"Modern physics has taught us that the nature of any system cannot be 
discovered by dividing it into its component parts and studying each 
part by itself. . . .We must keep our attention fixed on the whole 
and on the interconnection between the parts. The same is true of our 
intellectual life. It is impossible to make a clear cut between 
science, religion, and art. The whole is never equal simply to the 
sum of its various parts." --Max Planck
