This discussion descends hour by hour into deeper abysses 
of silliness. 

Haven't we all had, in life, the experience of knowing people 
who could generally be believed, and others -- Munchausens, 
fantasts, compulsive liars, used-car salesmen, Democratic 
politicans -- who could not?  

Suppose you get an agitated phone call, late at night, from 
one of the former, passing on some alarming news. You might, 
under those circumstances, be inclined to investigate 

But then suppose you get an equally alarming call from one 
of the latter group. If you have a brain in your head you 
will cut the conversation short and go to bed, and never give 
it a second thought.
