you've touched on an important concept for the future of the universe... "extreme moderation" or "fanatical centrisim" or "level-headed zealotry."

how else can logic and common sense be heard over the screams of the crazies?

with in-your-face judiciousness.

gene roddenberry made me think about this with the Spock character from Star Trek.

Yeah, I'm a geek.
