WG would not be so foolish as to say that I made up those quotes because I quoted exactly which book, page, ML number etc. to go look and find it. Anyone with that volume can confirm they're real quotes.
My only guess is that this is a difficult issue to answer. WG loves Mo and this can't be easy to try to swallow. But I'm not trying to paint WG in a corner. I just want to help him smell the coffee.
