Thanks Scratchpad. I don't know this person terribly well, but bump into them well enough to perhaps have lunch sometime and get a better idea of their state of mind. I suspect it's generally "in tact", though there are probably "issues" going on as well. Or maybe not. It's difficult, as you say, because you can't (for lack of a better word) convict someone for being odd or racist or even hateful. Peace...Saturn.
