I am delighted to see you at Level-2, Richard. Fighting for honesty and
defending the poor. Embarking on "the quest for truth" journey. Welcome
back, Richard!

I hope there is a new version of the following lines of the "Virus of the Mind":

"People programmed with the /quest for truth/ meme often spend time
analyzing past events, trying to figure out who was right, who was wrong,
what people's true intentions were, and so on. Like stopping the football
game for instant replays, stopping to figure out the "truth" all the time
can distract from your enjoyment of life."

All Level-2ers, let's distract ourselves from our enjoyment of life (no
cognac and no cigars until the case is resolved, OK?) and let's find a
mutually acceptable judge. Whom do you suggest, Richard?
