I understand perfectly, unless there is some game-playing going
on with his comments. Should I assume that?

>I can see how you would confuse the two. Scull & Bones boys do

I agree.

What aspect are you referring to? Or should I reverse your
question and address it to you?

You keep insisting that I am confused. I didn't say that going
to Yale had anything necessarily to do with Skull & Bones crap;
my brothers were not involved with that. I was merely observing
that in the paranoid world view, the fact that they went to Yale
would probably be used against me...in their twisted thinking
processes.

Show me where I said that. All I said was that they sound
paranoid unless you can advance some concrete evidence. If youi
can't, you had best shut up and communicate privately with like-
minded people. Friendly advice., not a sweeping judgment. When
people say crazy-soundiing things, I always ask for the
evidence. Otherwise it becomes purely a matter of faith. And
unlike some people on this list, I do not have automatic faith
in crazy-sounding ideas.

Speak out all you want, but stop putting words in my mouth. And
when I hear crazy-sounding ideas, should I just shut uip, John?
Report them to the Attorney General? Turn the people over to
"Professionals?"

>Nope. Nowhere to go with that but places like this List, Dick.
>And gosh... wouldn't you know, someone responds and says they've
>experienced the same kind of treatment.

As long as Errol doesn't cut you off, you have every right to
comment on this List; and I have every right to respond to your
comments. Get used to it!

That's fine. Then the List is serving a priestly or mental
health function. People honestly perceive all sorts of weird
things that may or may not be physically, objectively "real." So
be it. I do not criticize such people as human beings; far from
it. But I may quite legitimately question the legitimacy of what
they claim if some sort of evidence is not presented. And I am
very tolerant about anecdotal evidence to a poiint.
