On the one hand, Alley Baggett may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Alley may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
