    Yes, being in an unsettled state, it will tend to settle; then, being in a settled state, it will tend to unsettle. So says The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Or does The Romance of the Three Kindoms...

    Well, I know I was judging you. ;-) But mob law and vulgar prejudice notwithstanding, the question is would it matter in drawing the young man further into the literary life. My guess is that Pride...

    The masks are going on again this Halloween. Politics is a dirty business. I don't blame you for not liking it. But history is history. Some of us can't help but peek. :)
