It may surprise you, but I agree with most of what you wrote. However, I
did want to respond to a few things - don't worry - I am not doing that to
argue! See below.....

Yes, I have found that to be true.........and I would be the first to
admit that I am very similar to Jonathan in terms of reactions. I would
like to think that there are smalls differences in our approach to
"being right"........

For most people I do this.........but Jonathan is a high profile person
with a tendency to use that high profile alone as his argument. Beyond
his CD's, his professional work isn't much different than any of the other
performer/teacher's on the list (his CD's are quite good though aren't
they!?)....yet he espouses as though everyone is beneath him. My
experience with bullies is that, unless someone stands up to them, they
keep ruining life for others. It is possible I could have left more of it
alone.......however......what is done is dones.

Well, we are all capable of becoming imature for even a little time....but
I hope we are forgiven?

Thanks for your note.....I know you mean well by it <not to be read
sarcastically....I meant it>.
