John Crouse YOU ARE WRONG! I never heard you speak at any dinner! You were at the same restaurant as I the NIGHT BEFORE YOUR BIG SPEACH and you were with a the President of the Donzi club who lives down the street from me. So before you state FACTS about my tall tale GET YOURS RIGHT! I am not in nor did I attend the Donzi function. I stopped by the table you were sitting at with Mr. Hodgkinson to be cordial and say hello. So please, before you bash me or any other person, get the FACTS STRAIGHT! I did not bring it up here until you came on here BASHING Mr. Alweis be his actions right, wrong, or in different. People here know I will lend a helping a hand to anyone and in the process make many sacrifices to help others. Just ask the NUMEROUS members that I have helped here. I did not bring up until you came on here with a holier than thou attitude. If you were such a fine journalist you would have reported what happened in an objective manner. But instead you were EXTREMELY opinionated and lashed out. Not professional journalism at all. You see, I do not need to be professional here as I am not a journalist nor do I profess to be. When I am at my job I am extrememly professional. Many board members are my clients and I am certain they can attest to such. As I stated earlier in this thread the manner in which you presented the opportunity was not such that it was intended for purchase. As I mentioned earlier, had it been positioned differently the outcome and my opinion of you would have possibly been more favorable as well. You see, I would simply have chalked it up to experience and left it at that, but I felt that in the manner in which you BASHED others here that I needed to show that you ain't all that and a bag chips Mr. Crouse. In fact, in many ways your actions resemble those, albeit on a much smaller scale, you were lashing out against. As far as I am concerned we are beating a dead horse by continuing this thread any further and it will certainly not lead to any productive ending. Whether you agree with me or you agree with Mr. Crouse, it really doesn't matter anymore. Continuing this discussion will serve no useful purpose to any of us as it is obvious that we will never agree. So I say, let us agree to disagree and let those bystanders form their own opinions.
