In the interest of accuracy, wasnt Herd quoting someone when he made that statement?
Not that he should be released in any way from his head shaking ignorance but some of you here may be in the same position I am in. I am in the position of having to make sure any statement I make to my "still in" family members is beyond them being able to take any issue with.
If I make a powerful statement and attribute it wrongly, the answer back is "you didnt even have your facts straight" and they brush off everything on that "technicality".
It is on that basis that I am taking this statement by Herd slowly. If this is not a quote on his part - my apologies.
