How many hairs you got on your chest? I attribute that comment not to masculinity but to "honesty". Femininity has nothing to do with it. Not that females aren't honest, they look at it a whole different way. That is a whole 'nother book. I am talking about men here, "Good ol Boys", the show runners, the bosses, the apple peelers, the ones who separate the cores from the meat, the originators, the "first ones", the checkbook signers. How many have you known, the ones who write your paychecks, who give you the job, who determine when you are fired, who gives you your next meal. You are here today and gone tomorrow and the apple peelers go about their business, because they can. How many of those folk have you met in your live? Like W. Rogers said: "The fellow that can only see a week ahead is always the popular fellow, for he is looking with the crowd. But the one that can see years ahead, he had the telescope but he can't make anyone believe that he has it." I wonder when the honest people will stand up or the dishonest ones will show themselves. John.
