Oooh Brother! This again? No offense to anyone in particular so take what I say and open ya mind for half a second before you assume this applies to you.
The only thing that brings this board down is when some stick-in-the-mud type tries to direct the conversation in a direction that he/she wants it to go in rather than enjoy (or not enjoy) the natural flow. Obviously everyone on the site has proven that they are conversant on a variety of subjects. Those that can contribute to the subject of the day, do. Those that cannot either stay silent or complain about the direction the conversation has gone in. I say, if you don't like the conversation, what in Samuel L. Hill is stopping you from starting another thread and picking up where you want it to begin? I think the moderators have done a wonderful job of making it easy to start a new thread and even encourage it.
I taste a variety of wines also. Usually white semi-sweet wines from California chardonnay to pinot grigio imported from Italy. I guess it shows in your conversation when you are well travelled. You see, I've been to all black schools and integrated schools, played football and basketball, travelled the country in the service, shook hands and made alliances with the lowest form of ghetto thug as well as many leaders of the free and 'not-so-free world'. I like cheap beer and expensive wine. I've done hard physical labor in warehouses, and I've taught a block of instruction on nuclear weapon systems. So you see, some of us don't have a problem jumping from talking about books and current events, to sex, religion and politics. People that cannot transition should sit at the little table in the basement on Thanksgiving. We got grown folks talking up in here.
