I can hardly consider my type of person as an "arm chair hero" particularly
when several of us have mentioned the Flight 93 heroes. (And no, I would
never consider something I've DONE or would do as heroic. Just human)
I've never met anyone who would move table because of a racy, religious
(sexuality which you did not mention) or any other reason other than just
not getting along with them... Particularly on a cruise! Maybe you know
people like that or choose to cruise with people like that. Now, if someone
mentions it on the NG, I usually consider those dark jokes rather than
something someone would actually do.

Unless you were on Flight 93, you, me and everyone else here are just
"Arm Chair Quarterbacks" right?
Does anyone actually know what ANYone on a USENET board has done in
life? And how exactly does one determine who is more or less "Human"
based on what is posted here? Seriously?
Some people seem to have a need to appear all-caring, extraordinarily
"human" yet on Usenet... how'd anyone ever know? Have you ever seen
someone pretend to care..or pretend not to?
Deeds speak louder than words. All I see here are words.
What are you seeing?

My SIL was a psyche nurse. Proof in the pudding.

Babe, mentioning heroes does not make you hero material.

I am sure you haven't. You live cloistered in your own Babie World.

Put down that pipe. Walk away with your hands UP! Do not reach for the
pipe. No matter how it calls out to you.
