Leon Hale in the Houston Chronicle on How to Avoid a War Argument --

"Maybe I could pick a time to say something like, `Isn't this war just about the most amazing event in our history?' That way they wouldn't know exactly what our position is, and it might get a reaction out of them that would tell us where they stand."

"Good idea. If they heard a remark like that, they'd tell you in a New York Minute that the war is either right or wrong."

"And they might even be on our side."

"Well, it's a 50 percent chance. If they agreed with us, we could sit there half the night talking about the war, and nobody would get upset."

"Which would be wonderful. I'm so tired of going out for a friendly get-together and ending up in these debates about Iraq."
