New Excuse On The Block

Now this is one of those "hard-to-believe-but-is-it-too-good-to-be-true" types of situations. This is the second time this year I have read an article in a local paper regarding a small group of allegedly (I haven't verified their credentials) doctors of oncology and alternative medicine who say they want to build a holistic type of treatment center in Playa Blanca, and that they will even give free treatment to the poor. The "gotcha" is that in order to build the clinic first they have to build and sell a condo development, which they supposedly sold their own homes to fund. Now these folks could be for real, and I guess I hope they are, but I can't say as I agree at all with their method of supposedly raising revenue to build such a clinic here. Guess we should be glad it's not going to be a very large clinic, or else they might have to develop a marina in the lagoon at Barra de Potosí! D-Loco, a reader of my Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa Message Board wrote "Oncology firms-corporations-investor groups are the latest wave of fax/email/postal phishing and stock boiler room pressure sales." One of the doctors involved claims that he "is an accomplished direct channeller of universal information, [and] has permanent contact with high Ascended beings". Now I may be just a lowly unenlightened country boy who can barely talk to Earthlings, much less Ascended beings on the astral planes or rocket ships or whatever they're getting around in these days, but credentials like those cause me to raise a skeptical eyebrow. It's like the Maharashi Mahesh Yogi who claimed to be able to fly via meditation but wouldn't explain why he still needed 6 helicopters to get around. Some folks see'em coming and steer clear, others flock to them with blind faith. Namaste, y'all. ;~)
