To no individual in particular, but Jerry Clark recently
mentioned Charles Fort as an influence on this thread, and as
coincidence would have it, I was working on some Fort material
today and came across the enclosed, from p. 62 of Fort's The Book
of the Damned. I call the excerpt "Honest Opinion," but of course
everyone is free to choose their own title:

"Our own acceptance is that justice cannot be in an intermediate
existence, in which there can be approximation only to justice or
to injustice; that to be fair is to have no opinion at all; that
to be honest is to be uninterested; that to investigate is to
admit prejudice; that nobody has ever really investigated
anything, but has always sought positively to prove or disprove
something that was conceived of, or suspected, in advance."

Remember, Fort said it, not me. Although on Mondays, Tuesdays,
Wednesdays and Saturdays, I definitely tend to agree.
