I was hanging onto LiveJournal as best I could but it's starting to become untenable.
Similarly facebook has started frustrating me in record time.
Tonight two friends of mine started arguing about the bombing of Syria, even though they are both against it. It escalated. One called the other a narcissist.

I know I ought to say something, but the truth is the guy is kind of a man'splaining jerk at times but he's been a friend in hard times when he had no need to be.

And my friend who hurled the insult is a long time friend, whose opinion I find interesting even when we don't agree (which isn't that often) So what is the protocol? Am I obligated to get involved?

The thing is they are both pretty well matched intellectually. Both old punk rock kids. One is a rocket scientist (literally) the other works in publishing in NY. Both are slightly overbearing.
The issue is they just barely disagree about lesser issues but both tend to be condescending and stubborn and dammit, I just want to be able to chat with my 57,000 Comanche cousins.

Ah well I should be writing anyway.
I hope my head stops aching soon.
