I got my tighty-whities in a bunch last week over the emergence of "networking" in Floyd County and by letting my anger get the best of me I broke one of the cardinal rules of life here: Live and let live.

My apologies to readers of Muse and my thanks to those who took the time to point out that my actions were over the top. I’m a passionate man with strong opinions and sometimes I let both traits overcome judgment.

We now take you take you back to your regularly scheduled Musings…
