I can't compare ANYONE out there to him. He is a one of a kind person. I know what you are talking about but there is no way to hold him up as the norm. He has a calming effect true but his complete patience doesn't get through to a lot of people the way AJ's raving does. Not saying it's bad but a lot of people are SO asleep it takes ice water poured over them to wake them up. Not gentle shaking.
