Replying to LO19963 --

Joe's is probably the most insightful contribution on this subject that
I've read to date. I find it absolutely engaging to read the people who
actually believe that they can change another person! Perhaps I'm
mis-reading between the lines; the impression that I've gotten is that the
"change agent" is the one totally responsible for the other's change, as
if the "change agent" acts without regard to the other's is,
after all, a matter of choice to change.

Well said, Joe. I echo your sentiments...
