My wife and I were sitting outside on the deck one evening. We were having a few drinks and enjoying the night. Looking around, I saw something perched on a utility pole maybe a hundred yards away. "Look! There's a big owl perched up there on that pole." Every time a car passed, I could see that bird standing on the pole. Finally, I got a spot light out and threw the beam up that pole. Sure enough, up on that pole...there sat the transformer. Yep. That was the "big ol' owl" I was seeing. Yes sir. I am quite the naturalist I am.
Everybody has a right to express what he thinks. That, of course, lets the crackpots in. But if
you cannot tell a crackpot when you see one, then you ought to be taken in.
