“For the record I can answer that argument. He maintains that there was a discrepancy between his free-hand drawing of the “x” on the back, and the actual measurement, and I can understand that no doctor is supposed to be an artist with an absolute total precision as a draftsman when he actually had to sketch out…” -William F.

Artists involved without a doubt.

“You talk about faith in these institutions as if its a matter of religious experience. In a democracy we’re supposed to have faith in our own ability to look at the facts and reach our own conclusions.” – Mark Lane
