If you're not too sure on the veracity of these statements, why go there at all?
(In the old days, when mastodons roamed the prairies and steppes and humans were making a pact with the devil to serve him on this earth if only he would free us from the tyranny of megafauna, we called that "a rhetorical question." Now that we have replaced the megafauna that preceded us with super highways, parking lots and clouds of data that allow us to externalize our memories we have no time for any characterization longer than "snark." Can there be any surer sign that we have entered into the fourth turn of the wheel, the time called Kali-yuga?)
I am here to say, that is Hearsay heresy!! If we can't say what we thought we heard to the herd why are we here, say you?
[Sorry, I just enjoyed writing that. It adds nothing to the conversation and I should have refrained.]
