Mike's Story Part 16: Honeypot(?)
This account will probably offend some people who are of the, "Don't speak ill of the dead, and particularly, of Mike," school of thought. While it's true that historians bear a special burden because history is written by the winners, or at least, the survivors, in Mike's case, it's especially important to tell the whole truth, to the extent that one knows it. First of all, if we don't do it, the enemy will. To relay this story in context, as is the intent here, can serve as an inoculation against the sort of outlandish accusations which have been leveled against Mike in the past. This is a flesh and blood, warts-and-all portrait written in the belief that in the end, Mike and his transcendent work and critically important ideas will prevail. He lost the lawsuit and everyone finally forgot about it.
