nothing wrong with keeping the human side of things afloat - very important in fact
shocking premise, eh ?
and a well timed "society page" is needed for a complete newspaper, of course
you know, I think a LOT of this conflict may be a bit gender-connected - at least that's all the rage now in management seminars etc,
male approaches to problem solving vs female
attack & conquer vs nurture & endure
all that sort of stuff
what I don't get though, and maybe you can explain-
why is it the ladies feel justified in saying: "that's the feminine way of dealing with things, and you guys need to adjust your action to it"
BUT when the guys say
"shut up, nail it & get outta there"
(the guys who have worked construction know what that means)
the ladies scream foul !?!?!?
(couldn't resist that, after all, it's Sunday and I must follow where the devil leads, eh ?)
i don't really remember EVER posting anything vaguely suggesting we don't need, and shouldn't offer, emotional support.....
I have often suggested we could do a better job of sticking to the subject
