Your logic here is uncharacteristically sloppy, with projections and assumptions
that make it very difficult to have a relevant discussion. Nothing in my language
indicated that I was making a comparison, nor does the fact that you *were* making
a comparison extend to me in any way. Cause and effect are direct, not by some
manner of informal syllogistic osmosis.

Once again: where did I indicate that Cats was my favorite show? All I
said, from the very start, was that I enjoyed it. It has it's problems,
for sure, but I had a really fun experience when I saw it, regardless.
Better than others? Worse? I made no mention of this. I was just
being positive and upbeat about Cats, without any reference to other
shows. That's where it ended.

> I'm sorry if I worded my response to you a bit strongly.

No need to apologize, I never drew my sword, and I emerge unscathed! :-)
I STILL enjoyed Cats, and now I'm inspired to go see certain others based
on your endorsement of their quality. Thanks for expressing your *own*
