It begins to seem that the prudent choice is not to be prudent. I believe that if I present now, I will be in effect (if not in fact) laughed out of the Conference. If my colleagues become convinced that I am a crackpot, they may leave me alone.

However, I must not hedge the presentation, first of all in loyalty to my belief in the document, and second because it will place me on record at this earliest date. And actually, I cannot imagine any more effective way to guarantee my colleagues' incredulity than to make a straight case, -- nay, to do so enthusiastically. So I will present.
