    The real problem creeps in when all of those other voices start sounding like Skip Bayless.

    I too have noticed some being "driven by Other Voices".

    [I already posted this on the TwinsGeek page that has this same blog post; didn't realize it appeared on two different pages on the site.]

    I don’t know that there is a lesson to be learned here.

    There absolutely is a lesson to be learned here, John, though as a non-listener to your podcasts (who has time?), I can only take your word for it that it applies to you. The lesson is, "Seek first to understand, and then to be understood," or in other words, "Really take the time to listen before you talk." Our country would be far better off if all our discussions about politics and public issues followed that guidance! Whether you and Aaron follow it isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things, of course, but if you want to strike one little blow for better dialogue in American society, I recommend keeping sentences like "I'm not sure I followed that; can you run it by me again?" close at hand.

    Thanks for another of your always-thoughtful posts.
