Out on a Limb
OK, I’m going to go out on a limb here and write a little bit about some things I really don’t know enough about to write about. Of course I don’t know all that much about anything I already write about to be considered an expert. But to qualify for an expert these days you have to have a cushy government job, be on a pharmaceutical company’s payroll, and own a couple of vaccine patents. And I don’t have anything close to those qualifications. I do have a PhD in psychology, but it isn’t from Harvard so it isn’t worth all that much I suppose. And again, I don’t work for the government or the Big Pharma mob.
In fact, although I do know a bit about psychology, I like to think of myself as a common sense writer—a critical thinking observer, just like most of you. Not too much of an expert on anything, other than having the ability to smell a rat, and tell people about it—again, no different than anyone reading this.
