There's an old saying that friends are the people who stick around when its hard. Glad handing ne'er do well butt kissers will be gone at the first sign of heat.
My buddy Ollie has disagreed with me about politics and the green stuff (even though we agree mostly about the green stuff but his spin is a southern hemisphere toilet and mine pines for home in the north).
Ollie has sent me info about Michael McDonough. I'd never consciously heard of the fella, but watching the video on TED I realised that I was familiar with some of McDonough's stuff.
And now were on the same (plastic) page.
