Jack, that was a funny post and for the most part good, but there was no call for saying to Lydia, 'You joined The Family because you are stupid. You took so long to leave because you are stupid. Anyone who joined TF of their own free will is an idiot.'

I get the feeling that you meant that comment tongue in cheek, at least I hope so.

While you may be angry at those of us who joined the Family by choice (as opposed to being born into it), it is neither accurate nor helpful to make generalizations that we did so because we were 'stupid' or 'idiots.' Intelligence is largely genetic & 'stupid' parents could not have had so many bright children.
