i agree with all this. when i initially saw the TED talk, i was super impressed with Patterson. Smart, articulate, etc. - and got me even more excited about Leronlimab.
But this group he's aligned with is a train wreck (Rosenbaum, Pestell - those guys are slimy). If i were Patterson, i'd just quietly bow out, save my credibility, and buy a bunch of shares of CYDY. i would respect him a hell of a lot more if he did.
