        Tom S: I happen to be a neighbour of Ben Hillman, and I have known him for many years. Actually he is a very happy, grounded, sane, positive and constructive individual who I am proud to call my friend, and whose opinions I value highly. Your “opinion” merely illustrates what kind of person you must be, especially if you don’t even the courage to write your full name.
