You ARE STILL in "la la land" ( or rather Thom-me land ) on just about everything.

Are you ever going to open a conversation ( aka interview ) with an "intelligent" question that demonstrates that you might have actually read the book, or leafed through it, or made any effort at PREPARE?

When you interviewed Stephen Drucker on GMO's and his book, you began with that same stupid question. His introduction is titled: How I reluctantly became an activist: which is all of 5 pages long..........just imagine what you could have asked if you had bothered to take the time to read it......or actually knew what a "great mind" was.....or KNEW how to DO and interview on an "important" subject?

No this IS NOT Ari Ben Canaan's Israel.....but an evolution of it.....where the opposition operates on the stated principle that Israel has NO RIGHT TO EXIST. This FACT didn't seem to deserve any attention in this part........Thom me land is a strange place, is it NOT?
