Thank you for your words of support. However I must make sure
that I am not misunderstood. In the post, I address not the
true researcher, but the false researcher.

There is some redemption for the few who delude themselves into
the mistaken belief that what they do is for the good of all.
But those to whom I spoke in that post are the ones who lie to
the rest of us, not merely to themselves. And money, in my very
humble opinion, has little to do with it. It's more of an ego
trip for them, I think.

Second, I must tell you that from my very limited exposure to
some very few, very courageous, very dedicated people who may
truly be called researchers.... believe me, there is not a one
of them that can make a living at it. Not a bloody one! Trust
me on this point!

Most, if not damned well nearly all of those whom I've met who
are doing the real work in this field must earn their shekels at
something else.

Most nearly all of us, the good guys and the bad, and everyone
in between, know exactly who the players are. But some of us
continue to elude, delude, and otherwise, cheat on the truth.

I think the motto of the guys in the white hats should be from a
Bob Dylan song which reads, "I make shoes for everyone, even
you, and I still go barefoot!"

In conclusion, drink Gripple and feel gooood, again. Or is that
the Pepto Bismol ditty?
