One more thing: My mom made me this thing to hang on my wall when I was a kid, and I still have it. It's corny and kind of trite, but there is truth in it: Friends have feelings too, so don't bruise 'em; you must take 'em as you find 'em, or you'll lose 'em. A simple principle for a child, it seems to me, is a rule that applies also to adults who run countries. Don't burn your bridges behind you. Don't piss off your allies. Don't ignore the fact that you belong to a community larger than yourself.
