Words only have baggage if someone in the speaking / listening chain is aware of the baggage, right?
Very few rules weigh in at 100%
And then a reminder that a goal in life isn't to be beyond reproach -- at least my life
Defensible vs. useful vs. let's get it done
Locking arms together as we drive the car over a Texas cliff or stare down an advancing phalanx of not-good vs. locking arms at the beginning of the wrestling match
Trading arms, getting guns off the street, letter writing campaigns
And then the All Boats Rise
And then the Been There, Done That
And then the Are We There Yet?
Sometimes a tie is what you use to close up a garbage bag
Sometimes you're good to go
