A man and his delusions

Posted on September 18, 2009 at 3:24pm 0 Comments

I just wanted to post this link -- a true story from Harper's in 1954 about a physicist who thinks he's a ruler of an Intergalactic Empire and his therapist. Their is a twist at the end and even I didn't see it coming.

Mike, your last name is very unique. My ex-nephew was Eric Hostetler. He was in the Air Force and married my niece in San Angelo, TX. I wonder if we are related. His next post was in Hawaii. My niece never gave him a change. Fine gentleman, but he was too involved with his intendo when they went to Hawaii and didn't spend time with her.
