i used to work at a company that did typesetting and graphics. over the desk of one of my co-workers was a sign that was meant to warn against the dangers of careless typing and proofreading - and also intended to shock and amuse. the sign read:
THE PENIS MIGHTIER
THAN THE SWORD
i always found it disturbing - and all too true!
i don't know what made me think of that just now.
and i know - guns don't kill people - people kill people - and that could apply to this as well.
A man talking sense to himself is no madder than a man talking nonsense to not himself.
Or just as mad.
So there you are.
Stark raving sane.
