Be Reasonable

I feel compelled to write something for a number of reasons:

+ You are, like it or not, my therapy;

+ My brain has been in trade-psycho-overdrive for the past 30 hours;

+ It is only proper that I disclose any "big feelings" I am having with the group

Of the many complimentary emails I've received over the years with respect to this blog, by far the most common reason people cite for their love of Slope is my honesty. I freely admit screw-ups, fears, concerns, problems, and any other bad or embarassing stuff that 99% of other blogs would hide or outright lie about. Some clowns take advantage of this openness by hatefully mocking me, but Karma has a way of catching up with such souls. It always has. I'm not going to let emotionally-unstable sociopaths keep me from being open and honest.
