: Okay, phew... I sat around last night thinking a lot about what's going on. I got my
: dander up, then fought and got it down. My blood pressure went up, and I fought and
: got it down. I got aggravated and I fought and calmed down. Did I like what seems to
: be going on? No. It's been a stressful week with all of this. Finally, I said to
: myself STOP ! This is not the end of the world, or apparently, of the Kingston
: Trio. Just POSSIBLY the Kingston Trio we now know and love. But who here didn't know
: how to take it when Dave left and John replaced him. Granted that wasn't the whole
: Trio in one fell swoop, but it was change. And probably many of us didn't like it or
: thought it was the end of the Trio as we knew it. But correct me if I'm wrong,
: things worked out very well with John and his banjo. So after a rough week, I
: decided to calm down, relax and just see how this thing pans out.
: And today, I feel a lot more relaxed and at peace with myself. Oh, and another big
: factor in my thinking is that there's absolutely nothing I or for that matter, any
: of us can do about what may or may not happen. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. So why get my
: bowels in an uproar worrying about something I can't do anything about, whatever
: that anything is? I'll continue to read the posts and I'm sure I'll understand
: everyone's point of view and where they're coming from. But I'm not going to post
: anything negative anymore. I don't know the details even after reading the posted
: document. And GAWD, I hate reading those things. During my thirty years in law
: enforcement I had to read through and in some cases, like arrest and search
: warrants, write the damn things. But that posted document only tells one side of a
: story. We'll just have to wait to hear the other. And I'm sure, eventually, we will.
: Okay, I'm tired of typing. But there is a point to this here post.
: Knowing how I feel today as compared to the past few days, I'd like to suggest to
: everyone to do the same. Sit back, relax, take a breath, maybe enjoy a nice scotch
: and soda, and give a lot of thought to is this anything to really go ape sh*t over?
: As I said, none of us can do anything about it. And I think most of us have vented
: by now. So let's not defame or complain about anyone anymore and let this go through
: the courts, or maybe not. Maybe it'll get settled before a jury trial. Hey, now that
: I think of it, a twelve man jury of Bob Shanes's "peers" would be a hoot
: to see! Okay, just trying to lighten things up a little. Anyway, calm down, relax
: and let's get back to the business of Crossroads. Just my heartfelt suggestion.
