    Today by chance I had someone in the shop from New Zealand - he had a 'New Zealand' patch on his leathers (biker) so after the business was completed I commented:
    "I'm guessing you are from New Zealand."
    "Yes. Beautiful country. Shame about the people."

    That's how I feel about New England.

    Happy Thanksgiving, John!

    That's what I'm saying. It's "more important" if somebody I know dies. Somebody I know (and care about) is more likely to be Canadian, more likely to be white, etc.

    You are mangling cause and effect.

    There is nothing wrong with me caring about someone I know, whether or not they happen to be Canadian or white. That they are, does not reduce the ... purity of my care.

    You seem to be reversing it, suggesting that, because this person that I know (who happens to be white and Canadian) is important to me is because they are white and Canadian.

    Logically, that's not valid.

    What has logic got to do with human emotions?
