    On my web site is this quotation:

    Edmund Burke: "Nobody makes a greater mistake than the person who does
    nothing because only a little can be done."

    I think where we agree is that there are places we can have an effect.

    I think where we disagree is where some of those places might be.

    I don't have any problem with that. There are no hopeless cases with God.
    Therefore, your triage concept is unpersuasive, although I do understand

    I think you think my attendance at the Sebeny seminar, and my consequent
    publishing of my notes and comments on this (and other) lists, and the
    ensuing discussions, is a case of tilting at a windmill. You may be
    right. And it may be that, in the final accounting, it will have no
    effect at all. But I don't know that.

    I do know that my web site has received a decent influx of visitors in
    the past week, so somebody is noticing.
