Dittos on nudging folks out of their comfort zones. Not very rewarding, but definitely necessary. I'd rather be sailing too, but duty calls. Who knows but perhaps an off-handed quip at the right time and right place may have changed the course of history for the better. Or at least slowed down the race's pace towards self-annihilation.
My problem is I just don't when to shut up. ;>
My daddy was a staunch conservative, but he always told me not to be so intense, “the pendulum will swing back”. I’ve never believed that was a viable analogy. Things left to chance usually go to Hell.
