Response to Aristus (Original post)

Tue May 31, 2016, 12:14 PM

3. A dear friend of mine,

whom I consider brilliant in many ways, is a huge CTist - even though he's not a republican. (He's gung-ho for Bernie Sanders.)

My friend goes off on a tangent periodically on some CT or another. He recently emailed me this:

Please forgive my occasional psychotic episodes, El. I have this not only vivid but connective imagination, and sometimes I go plunging off into the theoretical wilderness and insist on trying to take everyone with me. Back in the late eighties when I was living alone in the boonies and had a television (rare for me) and cable TV (even rarer) I watched hours and hours of TV daily, filling my head with Ross Perot, UFOs, JFK assassination theories, the supposed questionability of the lunar landing, CIA mind control experiments, which some said produced all the well-known serial killers + Charles Manson – and other such stuff. A bizarre worldview formed in my noggin, and I know that some of my letters to friends and family were manic if not unintelligible. Some still are. I hope you’ll pardon my lapses into insanity.
