    it is not fair to paint all of the same group together with the same brush, because of outliers.

    this goes for many other religions as well.

    then those "others" have to think about the reasons why they are in it in the first place.

    saying that having one errant monk can cause you to lose belief in your religion, is like saying that having a gwc molest someone and go to jail will cause a photographer to give up photography.

    this is a personal sort of thing, you shouldn't let others' actions determine your faith/belief.

    Truffles pudding.

    I'm surprised that Pan Pac is only 1k per table. I though its like 1.3-1.5k range on a weekend. Intercon already 1.3k min plus still what 32 tabs min? (ard there).
