and to seek to puncture the alternate reality bubble with which his psyche has surrounded him in order try to bring a more accurate reality to his awareness.

Posted on 07/25/14 at 05:27 pm in response to Mills taps Scott Walker's former campaign chief in race against Nolan

and he's completely willing to believe them.

Sad; I thought Bill still had his wits about him.
