It seems like the answer should be obvious. But there it is, still a question. It is still a question because many of (us) still can be found trying to make 'them' comfortable. Clearly, we have no obligation to do this. And actually, there is no need. All the reasons...wait. I find myself getting exasperated at myself for trying to search for some rationale 'they' might use to explain why meeting their needs is the thing to do. Am I craazy????
