Dear Old Guy:

Well, it seems you are going to drum up some sort of judgement or opinion no matter what I say.

THere was actually one lesson I learned during the period I studied Scientology, which I have retained: don't draw conclusions from illogical data, or your conclusions will be flawed. That includes, largely, data written by less than discriminating media hacks, bias-punters, quill-for-hires and so on.

But in order to apply such a rule you have to develop a sense for when data is complete, consistent, normalized in sequence, reasonable in its assessment of importances and un-importances, and sensible about the true sources of things.

But I didn't need to learn all that while in Scientology, I could have learned it from an ordinary study of logic, or just living life with my eyes open.

It just made the process a little faster to see it up close.

Aside from that your opinions about me are pretty far off the mark, speaking as the owner of said identity, and I leave them to you with pleasure. If you ever want to correct them, I'd be happy to help, but that doesn't seem likely.

As for Bush, one of the reasons why I continuously find new articles protesting his nuttiness is that he is always on the go inventing new nutty things to be criticized for. It's not that I hate him personally. It is his abuse of authority that I take extreme exception to, and that same is abuse is what motivates me to speak out.

If he were replaced with a more rational person, with a higher sense of ethics and communication I would gladly turn my attention to plenty of other things.
