If you like, and I mean really like, tales of imbecilic levels of credulity, then this story is for you. I read it three times. First, as tragedy. Second, as farce, and third as comedy. The Author is to be commended for bringing this ultimately boneheaded situation in to the full light of day for a thorough disinfecting. The quotes, commentary, and pretty much everything else are perfect. It reads like some upside-down dystopian Dan Brown (if Dan Brown wrote dystopian fiction) science fiction story where no one wins, everyone loses, and everything comes crashing down. Except, except...this is nonfiction and every single part of the story (including the colossal levels of stupidity) on display are really real. Don't wait. Read this now. You will not be disappointed. Five stars!
