A Dialogue from Somewhere:
“I notice you never talk about religion, sex, or politics.”
“There’s nothing there worth talking about.”
“Okay, I’ll put it like this: There’s nothing there worth talking about unless you THINK there is, and if you do – you aren’t worth talking to.”
At times of extreme duress, the apparent helplessness of man in the secondary world gave birth to the concepts of ritual, prayer and sacrifice.
A longtime reader writes to us:
“My Good Sir, (and Madam): I must disagree with what you’ve said about ‘self-reference,’ for indeed, (good people), if a man does NOT refer to himself – who will?! (I assume you see my point.) Yours, etc.”
A man with a yo-yo says: “There is one thing for which you must credit the dense; they in no wise begrudge you joining them.” (Hey-y-y…was that just you or someone disguised as a man with a yo-yo?!)
