"Proof of facts and documentation are meaningless and irrelevent in an age that does not cherish truth!" Kenneth Schustereit (Arrogant wasn't it?)

My maternal grandfather lay in a trench in 1919 for three days with a bullet hole in his leg so I could stand up and declare the truth!
It's a shame when a 200 year old newspaper becomes a rag!
