Heaven for fend some shiftless wind should drift anywhere near touching those of you who find poetic goings on not worthy of your time, or more so of spending it insulting those who have pain enough already.
In the rather long passing of time which has described my membership on this forum, I have come to know and understand some of you, and others to shake my head at in constant mystification.
And there are those who’ll gripe about a thousand posts which say one thing, never thinking that perhaps it is a thing of need, a thing best said a thousand times. There are those who’ll find a post which makes some feeble go of poetry or eloquence absurd enough to call the one who made it bad. And worst of all, there are those who cannot find things meaningful enough to do with their lives that they must come here and char and scar that which would be otherwise, quite frankly, beautiful.
So if you hated or disliked, or often times thought queer, our Aloha 737-200, then perhaps you’re right. Perhaps he, like you, didn’t fit. And perhaps if you have a brain, which methinks you do, you can look at yourself and try to figure out why it is so easy to hate, so hard to accept that which is different.
In the mean time, I will say that there are many of you who I would rather have seen gone before Aloha, and that his going makes this place less wholesome and less wonderful. He was a positive contributor, a good person, and an entirely worthwhile member. So whatever shiftless wind now fills his sails, I hope it one for better, kinder times with people less judgmental.
