@ tomi - First rainy & refreshed, then me (the lying alpha male apparently - I should be so honoured), now you. Are you trying to give the poor guy a persecution complex or sometthing? Are you completely bereft of compassion?
There comes a point when we should hesitate to intrude on private grief. He's made his bed - let him lie on it in peace. He's obviously very comfortable there, cocooned in his own reality bubble, so who are we to push spikes thru his mattress? Or bubble for that matter?
