All that aside, he's stated worse to me in PMs without me taking offense so I honestly didn't see my comments as crossing the proverbial line he chose to draw in the sand this time.


Intentional or not, you did insult GJ. Apology is in order, me thinks.

no. just looking for a name that they can identify with, and in a positive, but realistic way.

He did, Tommy. It's all water under the bridge at this point, with absolutely no hard feelings from me. But thanks, my friend!

I respectfully disagree. I don't think that is ohio's point, at, to simply reward without regard for merit. I think that he is trying to find a method of bonding both the kids amongst themselves and the kids with productive society. The desire to bond certainly works in the formation of gangs by establishing alternate "families" that many of these kids don't have, and offering the promise of success through whatever nefarious means the peer group decides. Why would it not work in establishing positive groups with a desire to gain respectability through self-reliance, ambition, healthy competition and the acceptance and respect of those with quite obviously healthier, happier, more satisfying lives? I think if you gave them a taste, they would suddenly find themselves starving for more.
Jeez, at, didn't you watch "Trading Places"? That was based on a hypothetical true story, they say! :lol3:
