If you're going to quote me, please quote the entire sentence, instead of
attacking a meaning that wasn't there because I said the exact opposite of what
you've implied. The entire quote was,

> I'm a (retired) scientist, so I like to think I have an objective

In other words, my scientific objectivity does *not* extend to the point of
over-ridding my humanity.

We are not only off topic, we are becoming personal, so I suggest we end this
line of discussion.
