The "Being Nice" Meme
I got a note from Peter Cresswell who is spreading a meme that asks us to name three people with whom we frequently disagree and say something nice about them. Cresswell says this about me:
First cab of the block is a Sicilian  from Brooklyn. Chris Sciabarra PhD, PhD, PhD favours extensive footnotes  over forceful prose and chairs over buildings,  and while his musical taste is generally execrable  -- current 'Song of the Day' on his site is 'Boogie Nights' for Freud's sake  -- he can write the hind leg off a very big donkey.
Footnotes Added by Sciabarra
 I'm actually half-Sicilian and half-Greek. Then, again, the Sicilians are part EVERYTHING.
 I hope that all this qualifies as "extensive footnotes."
 The only reason I mentioned my partiality toward chairs in that SOLO HQ thread was that I was comparing it to the puke that is sometimes paraded as "art" on the walls of the Museum of Modern Art. In truth, however, I'd take the Empire State Building over any chair. :)
 Jesus Christ! Ever since Charles Rolo called Atlas Shrugged "execrable claptrap," these damn Objectivists have used that word!!!
 And this is why I don't open up my "Song of the Day" listings to comments. Peter would never be able to control himself!!! In any event, I can't help it that I like to dance!!! :) But my list of favorite songs is going to go on for as long as I'm alive, and it includes a few hundred titles right now, stretching from classical to jazz to disco, and from "Ain't Nobody" to "You Must Believe in Spring." Sheesh! Surely we intersect on some of those songs, Peter! Make up your own list if you don't like mine.
Oh, wait. I forgot. This is supposed to be "The Respectful Disagreement Meme." Or the "Being Nice" Meme.
Peter Cresswell and I have exchanged music. And he's a very nice guy. :)
Well, that's all for now. No reason for me to come up with three people I disagree with to say something nice about them. I already have a reputation for being too nice to too many people! Bah humbug.
