I should have mentioned this first time around, but I feel so small doing it after Rush did it — giving credit to our K-Lo, who has been THE stalwart on this issue. In this as in everything else, we’re lucky to have her.
Anyway, Kathryn’s absolutely right. No one’s interest is prejudiced by a “no” vote that is just saying: “Hey, don’t try to get over on me. Tell me straight what this is about.l I’ll give you my respectful attention, but no tricks please.”
If they need tricks to sell you, then they’re sellin’ snake-oil … and you should tell ‘em to pound sand on principle.
