Bummer! I wanted to be the first to comment on the tape! <g>
Well -- good, the pressure's off and I'll take more time with my
own eventual critique. I'm watching it for the second time

A few words, though...

Let's face it... the right honorable Stanton (Tiberius) Friedman
leaves a smoking hole in the opposition wherever he goes (for
obvious reasons), forgetting for a moment that he refrains from
the obligatory insult that Mr. Mcgaha embraced gleefully and
repetitively... throughout... with his blithely immaterial,
completely off task, and cluelessly irrelevant contribution to
the program. Indeed, Mr. Mcgaha achieved every failure I would
have predicted for him, having twice heard Mr. Friedman in
action before.

Truly, the contest was so one-sided I was compelled to pity for
the decidedly pathetic Mr. Mcgaha. The -only- thing I say is his
defense is that is that -he- stepped up to the podium firing-
line when the *big* CSICOPian guns threw down their specious
weapons and ran like mongrel egg-sucking dogs. What say -you-,
Dr. Nickell? Et tu, Dr. Shirmer? LOL!
