I made no judgement about Lynn or the choices he may or may have made of
his own free will, did I? If so where did I make such judgements in my
post? I merely questioned how "free" his choices were after deciding that
his employer was not going to stop him from pushing this information to
the masses. Seems to me that his "freely" made recent choices were
influenced, I think that is easy to read into the events as they have
progressed, do you not also?
