Thank you, Brains. I don't mind heated discussions (especially about politics) AT ALL either. In fact, I welcome it! Unfortunately, Len doesn't see it that way. Len, if you're reading this, don't leave just because there's a heated discussion, man. What would this world be if we didn't debate? It's perfectly normal and healthy. And not to question your teaching skills in ANY manner, but I would hope that you teach your students to debate issues as well. It is VERY unhealthy to just pick up and leave when a discussion gets heated.
