Probably the most accurate assessment. Delusion runs in many directions. In all liklihood, no one "has given it to him straight" among the Mesa boys. "James, you're talking shit and here's why". He doesn't hear that among his circle of friends...then he arrived here. LOL. Constant back patting takes a toll. Especially when it's unwarranted. They say women working in close circles get on the same cycle....there is likely a male correlation to this. 5 guys all stroking each other's egos. Happens a lot here in Vegas too....especially among the short bussers.
