Thanks, Jeff, for kicking Judi's fractious butt. If I was moderating this
list, I probably would bozo-filter her. She obviously has a constant need
to set up her own cast of stick figures and knock 'em down to keep the
juices stirring. I think she's addicted to a kind of adrenalin high she gets
from slamming into her perception of other folks, plus it adds to the
inflated self-importance of the persona she affects. Back stage behind
the wind and thunder machines and flashing lights, she's probably
just a sweet ol' mama with a heart of gold. Why can't she just be
satisfied with that? I love it when she talks about her boy. Then the
real Judi shines forth.
If one's experience of Freedom does not put you where pain and ecstasy
merge into horizonless peace and joy, then it's time for your annual
Reality Check-Up, IMHO.
