POINT OF VIEW
Like many I used to enjoy Gwynne Dyer’s thoughts. Musings. Ramblings …
BUT IT OCCURS
that successful as the wee scamp seems to be, as erudite, well read, intelligent etc etc (SFX: lay it thick, please) he does sometimes … dribble … a bit.
to the balcony. Good for him, he’s made a dam’ fine thing of it and I sometimes admire successful people. (Goebbels was too, for a while.)
When an article in the local rag* titled “Life on Other Planets: Where is Everybody?” appeared I curled up with said clipping and a cup of tea plus bikkies, in for the long haul.
A BIT PEEVED
afterwards I ran a web-search and found the article (different title) online. I was peeved because unlike my own scribblings, Gwynne allows his obvious biases to peep through only from concealment. Not good.
I’LL LEAVE IT
for you to visit said article and see for yourself. Do it, life is too brief a candle not to get some enjoyment …
And here’s that link again, in plain text:
