Words hurt; I can't speak for others (like you seemingly do) but it will play on my mind all day that BG isn't held in high regard by others.
I know. I feel the same way when people throw around name calling instead of reasoning or even common sense. I think about it all day and all night long, without reprieve, because what they think and say is so important and meaningful to, well, everything. I know they are important in their personal and professional lives, too, and people who give orders and make things happen as opposed to those who just take orders and lope along without much meaning or purpose. That makes it hurt, too. It's tough, but we somehow make it through.
