Color Me "Surprised"

Well, I don't often eat my words (with the way I write, it'd be like trying to swallow a garbage bag of doritos). But I'd like to think that one of the things that distinguishes Codemorse from some partisan sites is an ability to consider other viewpoints and to give them credit when they strike me as sound, or reasonable.

Over on their site, Michael Hutchison and I have been going back and forth on "V for Vendetta," and our conversation's been intelligent, respectful, and (for me, anyway) informative.
