And Now a Word from Quentin Tarantino

I've felt over the years that its best to separate in one's mind what one knows from what one speculates. And where speculation enters into the picture, highlight it as such and heavily footnote and caveat. In the absence of pure fact, I find it best to understand that I could, in fact, be wrong.

Regarding Roberts, some things may prove to be simply unknowable for us, much as we would like to know them. And other things, whether we know them now or not, may resolve themselves as hearings progress. Until we have more facts on the table, I try to adhere firmly to the principle uttered in quick verse by a character in a Quentin Tarantino movie years ago: "The less a man makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look foolish in retrospect."
