Only time will tell if the silence will hold.
Mr Rodrigo,

I'm really too busy for this, but.....Seriously?

I have had my differences with Mr Harden over the years, and we've really locked horns a couple of times, but I have never heard Mr Harden, or any of Mr Harden's friends/training partners threaten anyone with physical violence. Quite the contrary, all I've heard is a "show me yours and I'll show you mine" offer, with a promise of friendly interaction. It is Mr McGrew who keeps irrationally "poking" people to the point that most of us are having a "Tennenhouse" moment (An aiki car wreck if there ever was one). "Tennenhouse, The Sequel" is a theatrical release none of us wish to waste our time on...again.

Au revoir,

Toby Threadgill / TSYR
