I know you are, Richard. And I never said Freud. I don't care about Freud all that much. I meant ego in the strictest FONZI sense. Just that people like to argue their points to avoid admissions that they are WRONG! Once again, you're setting up this situation where it's either Brodie or Freud. Brodie or Fonzi? How about if I choose to listen to you more than I do Freud or Fonzi? Hmmm. What level am I at now? Maybe I am an especially thick student in need of extra instruction. What do you think?
