"Courage and moral conviction"

What sort of boarding school parc is that?  You make it sound as if
you guys were (it being Memorial Day) battling for position on Okinawa
or something.

It was a frickin' ski day, at the end of the season, in less than
ideal conditions.  Further, in those conditions, you had a team fully
prepared and knowledgable - whether or not Jim chose to go.

Instead, he had the balls ("courage and moral conviction") to actually
go and check out the conditions and then make a decision in light of
the possible repercussions of _not_ going (seen here - mostly, the bs
from you guys).  Obviously, he decided there were other better things
to do.

On many far better days to head out earlier this spring, when Jim and
many others in this forum were out there, some of you chose to spend
their time in Reading or Burlington.
