MARGIN OF ERROR
Richard Hughes

ALDERSON, WE LOVE IT ALL OF US!  WE SHARE A COMMON HERITAGE BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE.  ALDERSON FOR ME WAS A GREAT CHALLENGE.  I HAD NO INSIDE TRACK BUT I DID HAVE AMBITION AND DESIRE WHICH ALWAYS CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT.  AS I GREW UP IN ALDERSON RIGHTLY OR WRONGLY.  I BELIEVED MY MARGIN FOR ERROR  WAS VERY VERY SMALL. I WAS VERY NA¤VE AND IGNORANT OR UNINFORMED.  IT WAS MY HUMBLE OPINION THAT I WAS AN OUTSIDER SO I FIGURED MY LIFE WOULD NOT  BE THERE.  HOWEVER, I CONCEIVED THAT IT WAS NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE AND BEHAVE MYSELF.  THAT PUT ME IN THE CATEGORY OF IMITATING MR. ROGERS.  AFTER I MOVED FROM ALDERSON I REALIZED BEING MR. ROGERS WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA.  TODAY BEING MR. ROGERS IS ABOUT AS FAR FROM ME AS YOU CAN GET AND MY MARGIN OF ERROR, THANKS TO MY SITUATION, IS ABOUT AS BIG AS IT CAN BE AND REMAIN LEGAL.  THANKS FOR THE LESSON, ALDERSON.
