RE: [Histonet] Democracy

From:"Rittman, Barry R"


I was neither advocating for or against Canada Balsam. 

I don't believe that either could in the farthest reach of the
imagination be classified as either religious or political.

I did point out that there is in fact a place for both DPX and Canada

I have mounted ground sections in both DPX and others in Canada Balsam.
I had fewer problems with bubbles and with air creeping in under the
coverglass with Canada Balsam than with DPX.  

On the other hand if I had to mount several hundred slides I would
prefer to use DPX chiefly because of the ease of cleaning the excess
mountant from the slide.

Too often in histology (as in life)  everything is seen as pure black
and white rather than shades of gray.

Wasn't it you, who just last week, was advocating for Canada Balsam??
Pretty hypocritical if you ask me.

Histonet is not supposed to be a political or religious sounding board.
If you wish to criticize this or any other country or any religion then
please take this elsewhere.
Let us stick to histology.

Can't we just all play nice once in a while, instead of flying off the
handle for one comment? OK, 2 or 3 would be a problem, but I am getting
a bit tired of the vocal minority, on opposite ends of the spectrum. I
think a part of the Democracy thing is that we should respect the idea
of respect in freedom of speech. Sure people say all kinds of things,
but we don't need to instantly attack them. We need to be respectful of
others ideas and actions (as long as they aren't hurting anyone of
course) even if we don't agree with them. They have their lives and let
them live the way that makes them happy. (gee - pursuit of happiness...)
I agree about the democratic liberties being taken for granted. I have
visited over 15 countries in my youth and lived in Saudi Arabia for 4
years. I DO NOT take America for granted. I am even ashamed to call
myself American on occasion (current administration comes to mind), but
I am always grateful to have been born American to have the
opportunities and quality of life I have. Opps, sorry I'll get off the
soapbox now.



Go hang out in a Non-Democratic society for a few months then come back
tell us how you have never experienced it here in your homeland. You are
clearly a product of a democratic nation; you take your liberties for
granted so that you don't even know when you have them. If we don't like
we have the right to protest, to take action and change it! That's
