Rich: Sensitivity training should be my specialty

You know, it's beginning to occur to me that I'm not sensitive enough. This is quite a revelation since I spent a goodly amount of my life being told that I was too sensitive. As a child, Mama said I got my feelings hurt too easily and I needed to snap out of it.
