12:49:57     From  Jose Ramos : Adding to this great method of empathy is the notion of intimacy. Not in the conjugal sense of the word, but in its evolutionary meaning. Intimacy: The reflection of self-worth one sees in another's eyes.

12:50:58     From  Margie Lidoff   to   Hosts and panelists : I misunderstood original directions for poll. I answered the first ? with how YOU sounded, not how I felt. I suspect several others interpreted it that way, too, until you clarified
