Selling your Bocote Atticus? That's a real statement about the Verite (can't wait to hear it). Your writing skills are plenty good IMO. The challenging part isn't the writing, as much as the need to reach beyond familiar words & concepts, articulating new perceptions...that's hard for anyone (I write for a living, but struggle w/that part of reviewing). I have the 42"/720p Kuro. That + the other plasma (6 yr old Panasonic 50") really changed my appreciation of video. They both have a film-like, analog quality. The hardest thing of all is to reproduce is skin color; they both nail it.
