Verily! Pity the much maligned and roundly mistreated CSICOPians
of a beleaguered CSICOPia! Have some sympathy for their hand to
mouth pecuniary squalor, tattered environ, and shabby raiment!
Show some compassion with regard to an underdog relationship
proffered by the mainstream that detests them, discounts them at
every turn, humiliates them in the media, sabotages their book
deals, and otherwise celebrates CSICOPian enemies at expense of
the persecuted CSICOPian! Generate some empathy for the brave
struggle they valiantly endure in opposition to the _massive_
public paranormal forces arrayed against them!

Discounted, derided and dismissed by these too powerful
paranormal behemoths of the fabulously well-funded fringe, they
fight a never ending battle for truth, right, and reactionary
scientism! From positions of fabulous wealth and crushing power
the paranormalist dragons pummel the tidy nests of rational,
ethical, and moral pelicanists, who stand bravely in the fray as
true two-color heroes!

...Pity the poor, underprivileged, and deprived, but stalwartly
pelikanistic and scientistic CSICOPians! Verily! I say unto
ye...

...not!

PS -- A small taste of Good News for John Ford! The current
(albeit one-sided) discussions with ardent pelikanists and
Apathetic Andy Roberts (et. al. insisting on bringing hat-pins
to the ufological gun-fight) has inspired one more UpDates
subscriber to pledge a hundred dollars to the John Ford Fund!
Pledged monies are ear-marked for John Ford against his release
from jail where he languishes for a crime that he did _not_
commit... they have to let him out someday! Thank you, kind sir!

JOHN FORD RESTORATION FUND -- John will be released eventually.
He'll need a tax free cash stake to get on his feet. Let's put
one together for him; the bigger it is -- the more attention
he gets. It could have been you. E-mail for detail.


$450.00 pledged -- $200.00 collected!
