One of my readers sent me the following:
“Before I go on with this short history, let me make a general observation — the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.

Mea Culpa, or whatever Jews say to apologize for fucking up. Fitzgerald said it about twenty-five thousand times better than I ever could.
Thank you, my friend, for keeping me somewhat honest.
[And I have to apologize for my continued laziness; the spacing is fucked up because I copy and pasted it from my email. However, I want to write my own stuff and not belabor my blog, and so, please forgive me. I have deadlines to reach and miles to go before I sleep (R. Frost).]
