Hello Gerald, thanks for the response, most of which I agree with
 but;

I thought that Dick's response was untypically subjective, and
misleading.

Dick ought to be more aware than most of the concept of 'myth',
and how myths develop. The case in point is an excellent
example, and I would like to go into more detail, but can't
spare the time. Suffice to say that changed or 'refined'
testimony over time is a significant factor, as any historian or
psychologist ought to realise.


Regards,

Joe
