Re: That is a helpful post. It crystallizes your objection

csw doesn't speak about the time a few years back, when kev talked about how much he wanted to move to CO Springs and a job he was hoping to get he applied there. I remember very clearly that csw reached out and told him he knew many people in the Springs and he would try to help him connect with them as far as job prospects if kev was interested, to email him. csw provided his contact info. I was very impressed he did that. He didn't have to but he wanted to help if he could. Well, after some time went by, kev said he didn't get the job and I think he may have even said he was "over qualified" and that is why he wasn't hired. And he was ok with it because he loved living in Utah and this again, after he said many times how much he wanted out of Utah. csw never commented on it, if they met, if kev had any further contact reg. his offer to help.

So much, much later I was surprised that csw's feelings toward kev changed and I wondered about it but never asked. I assumed he had a good reason and it was their business. But I never forgot it.

There are more stories that we know about because they have happened over the years. Some we laugh about but they were not really that "funny" at the time.

I have nothing personal against him. I've never met him. I don't know what he looks like other than he says he has dark skin, black hair and many think he's Mexican which he is not. I think he is either Native American or part NA from what he has said along with saying he's white. I don't know if I would "like" him if I met him in person as I have with some people here and some that no longer come around. We all got along fine socially.

But I'm sure I will never agree with him politically and I will probably always have "issues" with him because we both know we would never want to start over in order to be friends or even casual acquaintances. It's just not going to happen. Too much water under the bridge.

This post is not meant as an attack on kev but an explanation and a defense of csw and the thoughts and feelings he has expressed today.
