	Thank you for your excellent clarification of the background of all
this.  I for one hope there is no *excrement* stirred up, for surely
there is no need.  Once again we see that misunderstandings come easily,
peace and good will comes only with hard work.
	I think the North has gotten a bit spoiled by the vast bounty that is
ours...the superb bards (I am told the bardic arts are suffering in the
rest of the Kingdom), the bountiful tables we set, the joy we take on
the field, the work of hundreds of hands doing the labor of
thousands...it is so easy to take all that for granted and not realize
that it can all melt away like the snow in spring--IF people are not
having a good time and feeling appreciated.  Squabbles can escalate to
immense feuds, honest disagreements over issues and policy can lead to
demonizing those who hold different opinions, and people will DISAPPEAR.
I think that is the real problem in the North, and EVERYWHERE ELSE IN
THE UNIVERSE, for that matter.  It's way easier to destroy than to
create, and a lot faster, too.
