Don't mistake my condemnation of PM's babbling as a condemnation of him. If some folks think he's a genius that just proves my earlier point about PT Barnum. And if he mistakenly thinks he's a genius because some choose to applaud him, then so be it, but they are doing him a disservice because it only encourages further manic behaviour, instead of treatment. Been there. Bought the book and paid for it, many times.
Frankly I believe it is MORE supportive to challenge someone to take a hard look at what they are doing and writing at times, as has been done to me by your posting. And I do. However my exasperation is as genuine as yours. Sorry if my tone is a bit testy but I call them as I see them. And as the grandson of farmers I have a pretty good nose for BS, which was also sharpened by some pretty damm good education in communications, amongst other things.
