Gloves off. goody.

A URL to a professional code of ethics?  I wouldn't do that, even to you ;)

I've never met Kay and know nothing of his character.  I only know the choices he has made.  And if he was not asking to be taken very, very, very, very seriously as a voice of vision on matters of education and our children, I'd  probably just be getting a kick out of his suped up graphics stuff.

I would only be assassinating Kay's character if I accused him of actual conflict.  I am not.  The point is that this is a serious enough matter, and his claims of insight into these matters encompassing enough, that I should not be in a position where I have to give those kinds of matters a moment's thought.  *He* has chosen to put me in a position where, as an adult, I cannot reasonably do otherwise. I quite rightly and reasonably resent that.  

Overexposure to mercury must have the effect of making one's common sense grotesquely large.

Freakish common sense.  Something one learns to live with, evenutally.
