Specimen Identification

In the movie A Few Good Men, Jack Nicholson responded to a question by saying, “You want the truth, you can’t handle the truth!”
Well, that is how I feel when folks write to me, asking for opinions about whether or not what they have is Ellensburg Blue. . . . .many, wanting to “believe” what they have is E-blue, simply cant handle the truth if they find out it’s not. . . . If you do not like the potential answer, please do not ask the question.

While in most cases (Almost always) I steer away for offering my thoughts on specimen identification, I will occasionally give some feedback if the specimen(s) are “clearly” not Ellensburg Blue.
In one such recent case, after asking my opinion (It was not e-blue) the person in question promptly put them all on auction marked “Ellensburg blue”
So, to the bidders I say, sorry you did not read this sooner, and to the seller, “I don’t know how you sleep at night!”

Like it or not, this is the truth. . . .
