Most people probably have the following question in mind after reading your list of denials: Why should I care?But I have a different one. It's, "why should I believe you?"This leads to a third one, namely, "why not just show up, meet Joe or me, and dispel the notion that you're not who you say you are?" Because if you're not, then you're a liar. And if you have any sort of moral compass at all, especially after the claims you've made, being thought of as a liar would HAVE to bother you. Of course, maybe lying only matters if no one knows for sure, and so if no one knows who you are . . . well, here I go, bein' all circuitous again in my reasoning . . . keely> Date: Thu, 31 May 2007 10:44:48 -0700> From: vpschwaller at gmail.com> To: vision2020 at moscow.com> Subject: Re: [Vision2020] School District Math> > Mr Campbell,> > There seems to be a pattern in this venue to select a key point or> phrase in a post and present it out of context.
