and, I stand here again, before Dawg, and all creatures, big and small (and Fish), to proclaim, Ugly Dougly's virtue and insight:
I forget the thread, but it was probably the "stock market" one, way back when the market "tanked".
several established "doom and gloomers" on eplaya, were saying "it's over"
I so recall, Dougly, in his subtle, loving yet stern "voice", noting "it will be back, and be better" and this, IIRC, was in reference to DOW 12000.
His prescient thoughts, elicited haranguing and vitriol. But, he held fast.
Dougly, is a visionary, I tell you.
A stalwart man, an "otter pop", in a world of overcooked spaghetti.
we should all be so lucky, as to call him "friend".
