Blimey! What's going on here? I, a cursed pelicanist and
skeptibunker, entirely agree with Alfred Lehmberg!

Polygraph tests are just as he describes: indicative of guilt,
and never proof on innocence. They are, completely phoney
science.

Bruce Maccabee has made a very foolish decision, and once he has
made it any - perfectly rational - second thoughts will be seen
as an admission of guilt!

Bad move.
