Re: Best Knee Unit to use?

George Boyer

Grant – In no way am I trying to hijack the agenda of this list….Hey, I am

only ONE person!! What is discussed here is important and pertinent. What

I suggest is that your agenda is sometimes not inclusive enough, that

broadening the scope of your attention would only brighten the image and the

grasp of all. Mine is certainly a singular voice here but the absence of

others posting in the same vein doesn’t mean there is no one, only that they

are silent for the most part.

If what I post gets you off track why not use the delete key to keep your

attention centered as you wish.

I think there is uneasiness about some of the questions I raise, not because

it is impossible to discuss them, but rather that they enter areas of

considerable uncertainty….it is uncomfortable to deal with ambiguity and

uncertainty, agreed…..but this is the means of growth and broadened

understanding. GB.
