"In 1974 I was invited to become a member of the Governing Body...I NEEDED ENCOURAGEMENT TO ACCEPT IT."
That statement is such a farce! My room was at the opposite end of the 10th floor in the 107 building where Klein and his wife were living. Our rooms were half a city block from each other. One day I heard this loud shout, something like "Yippee! Wha-hoo!" A few minutes later I stepped out of my room and asked a neighbor what all the commotion was about. She told me that Klein had just gotten a letter inviting him to be on the Governing Body.
Occasionally I was the driver who took Knorr, Klein and others to the airport. As such I heard both speak of their contempt toward each other. In my presence Knorr called Klein a "nut" and said "the only reason we keep him is because he's a good writer." On another occasion Klein went on and on about how Knorr was the most obstinate man on the GB.
