Great! I'll try to start on mine tonight also. We're going to make NewsTalker history. I agree, vitriol is not all that bad, as long as it remains civil.

There have been a lot of comments about the increasing vitriol on NT which is causing some members to avoid the front page (Buzz and Raven for instance), and causing others to avoid NT altogether.

You and I are known to be diametrically opposed politically and philosophically, particularly on the gun issue. Now that we seem to have reached a meeting of the minds on that key issue, I think it will go a long way if we demonstrate the our ability to reach an accord on a difficult issue while still agreeing to disagree on other issues.

We have shared friends list on Newsvine since May 2011, and I believe if we bring that alliance to NewsTalkers it will send a message to both sides that, with a little effort, we can tone down the vitriol and the Left and the Right can get along just fine.

Hey Neale - no worriesthere may be no "Firearms" in the J.D. Robb future (as I said they are collector's items), yet there is armament in the form of Stunners & Blasters - they have different levels and can be set to kill!

No police force would leave their men & woman in blue un-armedGrin.gif Firearms have been banned as relics of a less than civil society, which erupted into an Urban War - from what I could tell stemmed from the ideaological differences of Nationsand -in our country the people (esp. those) who think they know what's best for eveyone else!

Hi Neale, it's Kara. With Fed Up and Perrie's assistance, I was able to sign up just now. I hope you will invite me here to this group, if you remember me. If not, then send me a message, either out of NV (which will go to my email account)or here. As I am new on this site, I don't quite know what is going onyet however I am thrilled to be here. My avatar is different (a past belovedgrey and white kitty cat) because I couldn't make my Rose avatar fit! LOL. So happy to be here. Still Kara, and you're still Neale. A very special person.

Nice Avatar, Neal. Where did you get it? I want one, too.

103.gif Neal, I am such a dufus here. A FR notice kept appearing everywhere I went and for some reason I thought it was a reminder for me to send a FR. The notice began to annoy me so much, I decided to click on it. Low and behold there you are. Of course, I accept.

It is good to see you here.
