Bob Bork - It defies understanding, from our perspective. One can speculate, one, that the ACLU has been captured by the homosexual-rights movement, and so therefore they are attacking the Boy Scouts and friends of the Boy Scouts as a way of punishing us for having rights that the Supreme Court has affirmed. The other thing that is interesting is that they're attacking our friends. They go after our relationships with the Defense Department, with schools and school boards - and they sue those people, but they don't sue us. They think maybe that's a way of hurting us and hurting our friends for having relationships with us.

Wisdom is a quality that defies easy definition but psychologists who study aging have found that some of its components - judgment, emotional regulation - do improve with age in most people, consciously or not.] Of course there is a subset of people out there who are sitting in their rocking chairs, spewing hate, but my guess is that these people weren't very pleasant to begin with, ... The reality is that the data are fairly convincing that people as they get older become more positive and less self-absorbed.
