Sean, List and those short, big headed dudes....

How did they say it on StarTrek? I grok? Well, I do. And at
the risk of repeating myself like a garlic and shallot sandwich,
it was Frank Herbert who wrote.... and I hope I got the quote
right, the book is not with me here in the North country where I
am tonight...

"Truth comes close to being the basis for all morality. Which is
profound thinking, when you understand just how unstable the
truth can be!"

However I understand that there are few answers. I understand
that I speak from my memories, my truth. But I always make room
for other possibilities, other realities. Hey, it is possible
that those who call themselves abductees may have sampled the
same mushroom... I doubt it but you never know. And in my case,
it was never mushrooms.... a little Gripple maybe.....

I was not referring to THE TRUTH, which has certainly not been
revealed to me. No. I was speaking of those who claim to have
truth and proclaim it as fact. Anyone who speaks ex-cathedra, as
some do in this venue, is insane, on Gripple or just plain
lying. And that is inexcusable.

Thank you and (Hic) good night.
