I just wanted to follow up to say that I also got an email from my Dad. It was to me, the cool cousin I mentioned & the family member in question who sent the email. It said, in part,
"I know you are better than this - I love you - please think about what you are doing". It also reminded that he is a "proud member of the ACLU and similarly proud to wear the label "Liberal".Rock on Dad - I love you!
