Mike's Story Part 68 - A Presidential Energy Policy
"And I knew that it was impossible to put that Power into words; a Power that could be used for good or evil."
Corroboration of what I wrote in Part 65 - Furnace: "Both for better and for worse, this self-oriented interpretation of events was all part of that furnace of energy that burned so fiercely within him, propelling him into the heart of government wrongdoing to reveal the truth or, when that avenue was blocked, self-destruction."
But putting aside the unctuous and patronizing "compliments" followed by the taunt which simultaneously negates them and blames us for eliciting them, (by being "girls,") what are we to make of this email? Are the other activist and I his groupies? Was this an ejaculation for our benefit? The only redeeming feature is that I'm in good company; he genuinely respects the other activist...
Simmons died in 2010 of accidental drowning following a heart attack in his hot tub.
