    I have experienced the same reaction from Templeton followers; it's almost cult like.

    It's because they read it on the internet and if it's on the internet it must be true.

    I know a college professor in Iowa who is a big Templeton fan and when I gave him the correct internet references he refused to look them up. Some beliefs are beyond challenge.

    I am batting .500 on the Templeton source conversion if you will. One was upset at being lied to the other would not listen no matter how much information I threw at them. Squire reminded me of Cool Hand Luke. Ole Boss Keen said, “There's some men you just can't reach.” Oh well. I tried.

    Nice one Jarrod. Kinda reminds me of another great line from Cool Hand Luke.... Strother Martin to Paul Newman. "What we've got here, is failure to communicate."

    I apologize for a bit of a drift here but Cool Hand Luke is one of my all time favorite movies. As kid growing up, not matter what else was on TV if Cool Hand Luke came on my Dad & I would sit down and watch it together. Just a classic. Great, great movie.

    Hey - wasn't that a quote from Abraham Lincoln?

    I heard that guy hiding in Russia has a file that tells the true sources of all the NDP bourbons and ryes.

    Yeah, somewhere thereabouts, he's a blogger but I can't read Cyrillic.

    Re: It seems to me that...

    Thank goodness, I'm relieved to know it's not just me dealing with the Cult of Templeton followers. I engaged one in discussion for a while, as he asserted that someone should sue them if they are lying. I pointed him to a thread about NDPs here, and one from Chuck's blog, but he still wasn't entirely convinced. I think we left it at me telling him that since he was in Iowa, he should just go to the distillery and start asking questions.
