Greetings and salutations,

        I would like to REVISE the perspective a little (If I can) on
all this CHATTER I started with one of my posts...

(I am pleased that you like the Rorschach quote... I glad SOMEBODY
        Per, don't get me wrong... I was NOT angry that Mr. Eliot's
book refer to Walt as an FBI informant or that such aspects ought
not to be mentioned.  On the contrary I feel that such things
(sometimes!) contributes to the information that we call "History". 
        However, to slander someone, just because they are famous and
because you can make really BIG $$$$ doing so -- is about as
unprincipled as you can get.
        Marc Eliot makes Walt Disney appear to be EVIL INCARNATE and
someone who does not deserve any admiration or even the right to
have ever lived.  For many years now, we have all heard/read what
the media convey/write horrible things about well-known individuals
who are now deceased (and I for one am SICK of it!).  These people
can not defend themselves and should be left to their rest(s). 
There are various people who believe EVERYTHING they read and/or
are told (I think this is why tabloids[sp?] or so popular) and they
will take all this rubbish to heart.  Furthermore, I don't believe
Marc Eliot has all his so called "facts" strait! 

BTW: When I had said...
> I have heard something about Walt's involvement in the FBI
> trials. [...]
I was ONLY referring to mere hearsay and not as any FACT!

        No, I was not angered (that much) by the FBI thing, it was ALL
other garbage that when all with it!!   

Here's another that needs revision:

        I also failed to mention that I am only HERE once a week
(usually Wednesday or Thursday!).

Well I guess that's about it for now,
