In his editorial in FSR (Vol. 40, No. 2) on the death of the Earl of Clancarty (Brinsley le Poer Trench) in 1995, Creighton wrote about him: "There would be no point in attempting to deny that, despite his great zeal and energy for our 'cause', Brinsley went on to espouse a number of wild and absurd ideas (such as the 'Hollow Earth and Holes at the Poles', and the exploits of the ridiculous bogus 'Tibetan lama' Lobsang Rampa) which certainly did us no good, and played straight into the hands of the 'Mendacious Brigade'. But de mortuis nihil nisi bonum, and trivial matters such as these are for discussion on another occasion." So here we have a crank commenting on someone apparently even crankier, and there's a lot more of that sort of thing in the FSRs edited by Creighton. John Harney Listen to 'Strange Days...
