I don't know which makes me feel worse: Doug Gillett's sincere expression of heartfelt emotion, David Hale's coldly logical exegesis, or the fact that both of them undeniably are correct.
For those inclined to look on the bright side, it seems we should be grateful that things aren't worse than they are . . . and, if nothing else, at least no one is wearing our team gear at Klan rallies!
