    The essay he wrote for Salon is interesting, but the quibble I have with it is that he seems to be (or to previously have been) coming from a place where he thinks he has to hate people he disagrees with. That's a really unhealthy attitude to have.

    You're dead wrong, idiot.

    Seriously, though. I've found some people on each extreme effectively surround themselves with people who believe just as they do, then start to believe every good person believes as they do. Then they are confounded to find out that there are good people who simply think differently than they do.

I like our potential, but there's a lot of teams that like their potential. It's going to be how we put things together, how we grow and how we come together as a team. It's not going to be the best collection of talent, it's going to be the best team. ...." - Bo Pelini, Big 10 Media Days, 2014

    No good person thinks differently than we do. Occasionally Bruce becomes distracted and his mind strays, but one big squeeze brings him back around. Good boy.
