> Lou's thinking - and I use the term loosely - if you really look into it... were more like looking into the Dark and Disturbed, where the ability to love one's fellow man has long since fled... minds like that are not a pretty sight. Where so much what we value in being human is. ..absent.

Please don't post anything that others could take as accusatory or put them down. Remember, one of the goals of this site is to offer support.

> I trust that if a lot of good people are made uneasy by someone. . .there is a *reason.* And it doesn't *do* to just say, Adjust. Or, Be charitable. Be nice. It doesn't mean disrespecting Lou, either - but it does mean - and I think this is a difficult form of compassion - trying to see reality as it is, and charting one's course by that... People are so reluctant to play God when the situation *begs* for someone to, for a moment, adopt the role - in the sense of some shepherding kindness. A kind father. That's often what's needed - a kind and wise sort of fathering.

It may be best to avoid "difficult" forms of compassion here. Being kind and wise sounds fine, however...
