"We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." Orwell
"Men are so simple of mind and so dominated by immediate needs that the deceitful man can easily find those ready to be deceived."
MachiavelliThe fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one... credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.
I always knew you were a closet subversive.
And yet I thought I'd hidden it so well.

Thanks, Phil. Thanks, Phil.
Dr Sid, I agree with Phil. :)
Hi, Ramona. Actually, I couldn't tell if Phil was being complimentary or sarcastic.
Aren't blackboard scribbles like that one of things schizophrenics do? The conspiracy mindset is reminiscent of A Beautiful Mind (but without the intelligence).
Sid, I've tried for a couple of days to see the photo on this post. All I get is the title, "I've Been Outed" and a blank space below, followed by eight comments. I'll try to access it in a couple of other ways. I'm still out here reading your excellent blog, but dealing with assorted medical challenges in 2009-10. Learned about Fever of Unknown Origin (FUO!) & elevated sed rate blah-blah-blah. Nothing lethal yet. We are off to the tropics next week with kids & grandkids. Happy springtime!
Try this link, Ellen. The post above still works for me, but I've heard of trouble some have had. Have a nice trip.
