Another guy who obviously, if not indubitably, recognizes the power, if not the terror, of words, tells me that he’s changing his name to "Bill," “just to throw ‘em off the trail.”
At some other time at this one place, there was a kind of cultish little collection of people whose leader one day accidentally cut off a finger, and the next occasion when they all met, and the followers expressed their concern over his missing digit, he covered himself by immediately declaring that his injury was a predictable result of a certain “mystical ritual,” to which they were not privy. And several days later when they next met many of the faithful were missing a finger, whilst those others who still had some potential were simply missing.
