Chapter 70: Look Ma, No Hands – Or Head demonstrates once again the difficulty of writing non-fiction when the really crucial facts of a story are simply not forthcoming, are hidden, or still classified. There is a monumental challenge inherent in sticking to "just the facts, Ma’am" when the facts that are available tell only part of the story.
Writing non-fiction when the desired facts are readily available is difficult enough. Without those facts, the best one can hope to do is write circles around them, and maybe point to where the facts are hidden. It’s kinda like describing the wind. Sometimes all you can do is point to the trees and say "see, the leaves are moving."
