Ira Gollobin Speaks!
Ruth Basta has a website on which, among other things, she has Ira Gollobin
"speaking" from beyond the grave and telling us
what he thinks about current events. It's like channeling the dead.
Over on the right I quote from the opening page of Ruth's website. This sort of rubbish is worth a quick read.
I guess Ruth wants us to imagine Ira floating around above
Washington, D.C., wings aflutter, eavesdropping from on high on various dignitaries, and
every once in a which dropping in to see Ruth to spill
the beans . . .
Frankly, such stupid stuff makes a total sham of Ira's supposed love
of science and his supposed disgust for "magic thinking."
And it proves a far uglier truth - that his principles be damned,
what Ira really rewarded was whoever stroked his manical ego.
Dead Ira Speaks to you
directly from Ruth Basta's website
"Hi, I am Ira Gollobin and I approve of this web site.
Let me be clear about where I stand on some issues. Although you
might be misled by the statement above into thinking that I am running
for President of the United States in 2008, let me assure you that I am
From my current vantage point, I see that Barack Obama and John
McCain, both of whom expect to be nominated as their party’s candidate
for the Presidency, are busy putting their stamps on ads being
broadcast in these United States. They both say at the end of the ad:
"Hi, I am (fill in the blanks) and I approve of this message."
I will have none of that. I can’t. You see: I hover above all
of these rituals. I have done so throughout the 97 years I spent on
earth, thanks to my parent’s upbringing and my own discoveries as I
grew up, mingling with the common folks who through their sweat, blood
and tears, have built these United States into the most powerful
country of the 20th century."
