I agree wholeheartedly. "reformation"? Well, that would be me. I'm not the person that I was back in the '80s. (You're an LEO, go ahead, pull my sheet. But make sure your printer has plenty of paper first).
There was a point I Changed. Or, at least, there came a point where I could convince others that I'd changed. But... Have I REALLY changed? OR have I just learned how to "work it'. You decide.
Gere: Iíve changed, Sir, Iíve changed since Iíve gotten here.
Gossett: No, youíve just cleaned up your act a bit.
