In one political campaign someone responded: "It's the economy, stupid!", when the discussion got really off track. The reason being that individuals are primarily interested in their own economic interests, and then other interests follow.
So it is with this subject.
The statistics of readership for our two Blogs show where we are connecting and where we are failing to connect - but readers sort of keep one eye open to see whether our next revelation will impact the way in which they think.
The key is in the subject illustrations at the top of this Board. It is about 'that' book and the follow-up TV documentary of 1990-1991. The 'other side' yawns but one lone voice keeps on drawing attention to our investigation into that book. Big mistake on the part of that lone voice. While others tell the lone voice to shut up because no one is interested, the lone voice knows the danger that lurks in the contemporary ongoing silence. Because when a connection is made, and heavens forbid that this goes viral, well that is the tightrope that the lone voice has been walking.
But we know who that lone voice belongs to and it has now posted one post too many. Garry Stevens has jumped in and deleted the last comment by his Admin known as ALF but who posts as 'Fred Bramley'. Too late Garry, we already read the comment and 'Fred' is lashing out in all directions, not just ours. However, 'Fred's' comments caused Garry to panic and in so doing he finally admitted that he had indeed switched sides. Garry did this within the last few hours, and he did so in public. We have been asking to explain himself in private - for months.
Now Garry has just shot himself in the foot and admitted what we knew, and to make matters worse, he is now deleting the last comment by 'Fred' and pretending that it never was posted on his Board.
Life really is like that Ray Sharkey song with its line about "getting close".
