Jay, you are a mystery to me. Either you are playing me in spades, or…who knows. Perhaps its’ sort of like when I belonged to the Civil War Round Table of Wilmington Del. Our president was an ultra conservative and I’m pretty much a moderate, but we got along famously. We never mentioned our differences but concentrated on our love of Civil War history. It was a strange relationship, but I somehow came to love the guy.
