William, you're wise to insert the cautionary note "I don't know
how much credence we can put in this...." If there is any truth
to it - and it is up to Shell's supporters to produce more than
what look on their face to be unsubstantiated, hand-waving
claims - this would have the makings of a national scandal, and
I would join any effort to see justice done.

To some, clearly it's preferable to believe charges that Shell
is - in effect - a political prisoner than that he possesses, as
someone observed lately on this List, a dark side which finally
brought him down. The long history of human behavior, however,
richly demonstrates that individuals can be on the side of the
angels in one - usually public - area of their lives, and on
quite another side - usually private - elsewhere.

I say this, by the way, as one who not all that long fought an
environment-related suit through the courts in an effort to stop
a polluting enterprise. I stepped on some toes, but nobody tried
to frame me for any crime.
