Doug Sutherland has posted a lengthy essay in support of Dan in the comments to this post. I commend it to you:
Scroll down -- it is in two parts. I posted them under The Plainsman name. They are the 10th and 12th comment. I think you'll enjoy it.
Thanks to Doug and all Confessors who have weighed in on The BaD Radio Trilogy.
