I'm not into the whole PC thing. Neither am I into black or white thinking... which your original post and this follow-up seems to indicate. While I get that you perceive someone as a failure for going back to land (your prerogative), I was and am challenging your rather sweeping generalization that they are failures in all walks of life. Hence, when they return to land, they will fail there as well. But, hey, if it makes you feel better to believe that we live in a world where there are ONLY winners OR losers, by all means, have at it. *shrugs*
