Great post, GL-il. Glad to see you around again.
Tho I dunno Q except by reputation (wait, wasn't he my coworker's music idol in the midwest in the 90's?), it is not difficult to see good vs. bad pedo. Especially when money gets you your ultimate fantasy with a co-current get-out-of-jail-free card. Unless of course you've been working for a gubmint agency with many high-profile tales to tell. In that case, you kill yourself, with no opt-out clause in your contract.
Personally I'd still watch Q-A, but with just a bit of "skepto" under my belt. That general approach seems to serve virtually any thinking person well, and places you above and apart from the growing number of zombies.
I suspect a lot more people quietly see what you see. My gut tells me it's a time to build ourselves while the masses are preoccupied, but it's easy to get distracted by it all, and not exactly easy to find spirited girl lovers with both the urgency and wisdom to to take up the cause. I know they exist. I just don't know where.
