Dear John, Colin and whoever may be [burp!] up:

I asked for a Yes/No answer, a simple matter really, pertaining
to whether the Moon exists of not.

I got a philosophical snow-job in response, and not a short one
by any means.

The last part seems to indicate that those who believe that a)
the moon exists -or- b) the Moon does NOT exist; are not only
hopelessly "binary" [dull minded?] but lacking in imagination
itself!

Having no great love for Kings and Queens, I must admit that I
admired the Queen who imagined at least 6 impossible things
before breakfast! Freed of hooplah and ceremony, a woman like
that could have made a fine physicist.

In case anyone cares any more: No. Colin Benett did not commit
to any particular belief regarding the existance of the Moon,
nor the contrary.

If (fates forbid) Colin should be the prime witness to some
terrible crime, I would like to be in the courtroom when he is
cross examined. Try to envision this:

"Yes your Honour; I did indeed see this clearly, but I cannot
swear that it actually happened."

I dimly suspect, perhaps wrongly, that we are being toyed with.
If not, then we have a highly intelligent writer who believes
his own output.


Best wishes

- Larry Hatch
