Peanut Gallery — Listening With An Open Mind

re: “Afternoon Question” about listening to the other side of an argument

“I always listen to ‘the other side’ and then ignore it completely and continue on with my bias which is based upon previous enlightenment, conviction and common sense. One of my old famous sayings is that ‘we go to meetings only to gather more armament for our bias.’ Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but not entirely.”

Gary Igram

DFO: Not only did Gary make me chuckle here, but I appreciate his tongue-in-cheek honesty.
