    This is most unfortunate! As we will be “stuck” with John Horgan and his biased sold-out views, that generally match the ones of the totalitarian regime that unfolds before our eyes.

    It’s really sad to see these people, people that you know do not believe in something so evil, cooperate with it, in favor or having/keeping this position or that payoff.
