My signed contract with RAW

My new copy of TSOG: The Thing That Ate the Constitution arrived in the mail today. It's one of the few RAW books I haven't read yet.

When I looked at it, the beginning made me laugh at loud. It's funny, but also summarizes RAW's philosophy nicely:


1. The author of this book hereby warrants and gives assurance that the readers have no obligation to believe everything -- or anything -- in it. Nor does he hope to reveal the absolute & final truth about any topic discussed.

2. Readers must warrant and give assurance that they will not believe or disbelieve any part or parts of this book until they have given some time to careful examination of such a part or parts; and that they will file everything herein under "maybe" until or unless slowly arriving or "true" or "false."

3. Let communication between us begin.
