I am, as usual, able to see both sides of this... but frankly Brian is correct in his comments above. I know a certain number of you want to wax eloquent on inspirations and influences.. and a bit of that is fine and interesting, but those tangents also too easily drift into longwinded essays that many of us have no earthly interest in. Sorry guys. It is not necessarily shallow to want to decide how you spend your time. The CR list has been rather well defined and yet I use a lot of latitude before saying "on topic" or not. I will continue to do it that way, but you all are intelligent enough to know the limits. If you push over them a smidgen, it will be overlooked. Please don't try to redefine the whole list because you want to talk about a pet topic..... Peace,
