Barry, I'm not sure when you decided to skew everything in such a way to cast a negative light on the TM organization. I think there was a time when you felt as though you could engage in discourse that wasn't 100% agenda.
Oh wait, FLASH. The arrival of your acolyte, one Mr. Michael Jackson. Nevermind. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <turquoiseb@...> wrote : From: feste37 <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> This is just too silly for words. If the emphasis is on "assessing the content," why is it being promoted as being a message from MMY? The truth is that for some weird reason, Hammond is using this ploy to promote his own views. If he just gave a talk himself, no one would be interested. So he has hit on this ludicrous marketing ploy. As I commented earlier, I am astonished that anyone is taking this seriously. While I agree that the whole scenario is too silly for words, what does it say about the incredible gullibility and susceptibility of TMers *that* it's being taken seriously? In what other group would its members actually fall for this? What other group would proactively attempt to squelch it, as "Raja" (that's ludicrous in itself) Hagelin did? This is great theater. I hope *some* reporters actually attend, and write it up or do a TV bit about it. Can't you just imagine the headline/teaser?
