"This book fills a necessary gap in the literature." --- George Bealer on some other philosopher (can't remember)


Is it possible that that wasn't, in fact, Will Wilson on anything, but me on Will Wilson's attempt to sing some Bob Dylan song? (I'm not absolutely convinced of this, but I can't think of any other scenario I find plausible either.)


"This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force." Dorothy Parker, on -- you guessed it -- Atlas Shrugged.


But it would irritate Rand so much more to have it tossed lightly aside!

Is there a /reason/ you haven't included Mr. Buckley at all?

"There are several different varieties of snark. Some have feathers and bite, and some have whiskers and scratch. ...

The domain of the snark is an island filled with chasms and crags, many months' sail from England. ... The snark is a peculiar creature that cannot be captured in a commonplace way. Above all, courage is required during a snark hunt. The most common method is to seek it with thimbles, care, forks and hope. One may also 'threaten its life with a railway share' or 'charm it with smiles and soap'."
