One additional point here. In my observation, "shooting the messenger" is done far more often by TM critics than by TM supporters. What TM supporters have to say is routinely dismissed as the ravings of a "True Believer" or a "religious fanatic," no matter how carefully and logically reasoned, no matter how many facts are presented. Typically the "message" itself remains unaddressed, its analysis and facts unchallenged. Barry's one of the worst offenders in this regard, of course, but he's utterly blind to his own behavior and that of his fellow TM critics. What could it be that the *critics* are so afraid of?
