Not much of substance in there, just a lot of opinion repeated over and over again.

He gets a lot of it from Coram's execrable Ben Rich hagiography, but some of it is close enough to 'true' yet wrong in critical areas to make me wonder who's blabbing. Needless to say, I've never seen him at one of the get togethers.
