Re: Prince Henry Statue

Niven's generosity is unquestioned, Ian is doing a tremendous job at Noss

What do you tell the schoolboy looking at this statue who asks "How did
'Prince' Henry become a Prince?"  Do you say 'We do not know.' or 'Somebody
said so.' or perhaps 'Shut up kid.' One source, other than the Zeno
narrative, please.  One scintilla, one shred, one scrap, one morsel of
historical evidence, please.  We always weaken everything we exaggerate.
Nothing is more dangerous than an idea when it's the only one you've got.
