Perfidy Perfidious et al

Dear Paul Doolittle, here’s a word for you since you style yourself as a mystic running your SunPoint Farm and bill yourself as an honest man. These are marvelous words that are never used any more. Perfidy: “The quality or state of being faithless or disloyal : treachery.” That’s a nice start for the way you treated Lynn Shackelford. Let’s add this definition to this discourse: Perfidy: “In the context of war, perfidy is a form of deception, in which one side promises to act in good faith (e.g., by raising a flag of surrender) with the intention of breaking that promise once the enemy has exposed themselves (e.g., by coming out of cover in order to capture the surrendering forces).”

I never ever should have let you know what 6PK2GO was really worth. Yeah he owed you a little money and you told me that you’d make a place for me to work on selling his radio collection. I told you all I needed was some protection from the elements and an internet connection. You agreed. Then came the first of your “We need to have a meeting. This isn’t going to work.” From that point on you never let me get my feet back under me. You and your son whipsawed me back and forth until I didn’t know which way was up. Then you started in on selling the “Low Hanging Fruit.” And you said, “The only way I see to satisfy Lynn’s debt is to sell his car.” Way to go Paul. Lynn called the police in Derry, NH the first time you tried to sell 6PK2GO, and I understand you had cash in your hand when the Derry police called you on the telephone and let you know that it’s illegal to sell something you don’t really own. So you made the car disappear. Lynn went to the police and they refused to take a stolen car report saying it was a civil matter. Funny. You had no legal right to take the car but you did, took it out of Lynn’s control. That’s theft in my book. How much does it cost to buy the Derry, NH police? Or being a frugal Yankee did you just buy enough of the police force to get your way? Maybe called in a few favors from your time on the town council or the fire department? I want to re-write this a bit but I’ll tell you this Paul Doolittle: The next lesson is Duress, or When a Bill of Sale ain’t worth the paper it’s written on.

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
