Chronology rules

I appreciate the fact that Ambrose Bennett cares about island issues, but sometimes his self aggrandizement is just way too over the top. Other times his letters just don't make sense. Check this from today's missive:

"Mr. Cruz called me on 7/30/07 to ask for my HELP with drafting the testimony
for Taotao Tano and I asked him then to call me back later on in the evening to
give me time to think about it. During our conversation he “admitted I was right
about the political influence that was being put on him and the organization.”
Mr. Cruz never called back to get my answer and the next thing I see is his
offer on this page on 7/2/07 to my surprise."

I'd be surprised too since as far as I know, the time machine hasn't been invented yet, or I'd be flying back to check Hendrix at Monterrey in '67 tonight. Ambrose, proofread your own writing for crying out loud.

Maybe he was caught in Crosstown Traffic while writing.

I think he gets his students, or someone, to edit for him sometimes. There is a distinct difference in his style. Sometimes reasonably succinct and fairly well written...other times (and I think this may be the real Ambrose) it's like a central city 7th grader with a thesaurus rambling on and on about little or nothing, unable to find a point much less stick to it.

Common sense? Nonsense mostly.

He's using the Chewbacca defense!
