mochachino, I'm sorry you removed it. I saw the title and didn't get to read the details, but I'll bet it was an interesting meeting.Smile

yes, but in light of all the goings on I really would rather people not know what my son does for a living. I am proud of him and I am sure there are many on these boards that would take pot shots aimed at me since I don't share their leanings.

I didn't see what you wrote other than the title, mochachino. I do have to agree about sharing personal info here... it can turn out to have painful reverberations.

He is a journalist and that's all I will say.

I get those pot shots quite often, you're right to just keep personal information to yourself.

I think of the old nugget of advice to consider the source... I do, and I can see how unhappy they are with their own lives.
