If this is so, then why are the articles he drafts for VIEWFINDER so laden
with error and mistake?  His articles are jokes.  I -- and a number of
others -- have simply quit protesting as Dick is beloved of all and
therefore his ludicrous mis-statements are allowed to stand.

He is a person of prejudice and bias and some knowledge of the outline of
things.  He lacks detailed knowledge but opines on matters he simply knows
little of.  READ his articles and then read the works of scholars such as
Lager or Laney and find out the truth.
