I'm afraid you misunderstand; I don't deign to handicap what the market will bear. The folly of juggling art appraisal, thought policing, and literary criticism was a dagger buried in the door of Mod HQ by a certain scofflaw who happens to be pretty good with a blade. But hey, what's the difference? Now that the Bolts have finally turned the corner, we can all be friends again, right? Tiddy boom.

I envy your visit to Soviet Russia though, as my own forays behind the iron curtain all took place after the wall fell. I did rub shoulders with some heavy hitting mafia types who in all likelihood once played the part of devout "Socialist" pillars, but things are just too bloody expensive over there these days. I would have loved to have been in that neck of the woods when a pair of my Levis might have compelled a lupine Natasha (or three) to shimmy out of her drab, state-issued outfit...

Ah, history. "It's for the good of the proletariat that you must be punished, comrade. It brings we officials of the state no personal satisfaction whatsoever." Thank heavens that hideous trip has been permanently eradicated from the face of the earth, eh?

I hate to jump in, but are you actually comparing the CMB to some sort of Orwellian world?

Do you have a fancy word for exaggerate?

Freak is referring to an old poster who had an AVI of Betty Davis cartoon.

Tyranny comes in all shapes and sizes, my friend. As for sprucing up 'exaggerate', I actually try not to use "fancy" words when a simple one will do the job: writing 101, that. The thing is, I'm a lyrical sort and a lot of common words lack the panache and textured nuance of their big brothers. Speaking of him, when it comes to fighting spiritual wickedness in high and low places, color me Bob Marley. I only have bones to pick (I almost said 'take umbrage', but I'm tipping my cap to you) with about 1/3 of the CMB mod squad, truth be told. And they're skirting the issue, which is actually a very uncomplicated one: overstretching the ethically justifiable bounds of authority. Again, all shapes and sizes.

Is "irony" a fancy word?

Nah, but it is one of my favorites. All high quality humor is rooted in irony and if I couldn't laugh, I'd have to scream. On that note, did you miss the line after the one you quoted? Believe it or not, I don't bust out the thesaurus for this stuff.

I have to at times. More like the Spanish to English dictionary.

Do you refer to this?

Why would I suppose that this was gleaned from a thesaurus?


Had you written it as follows, I might have had an inkling to that effect: "The thing is, I'm a euphonious sort and a lot of common words lack the elan and virtuosic diaphaneity of their forebears."


But you did not. I suppose I am simply mistaking your reference? Or is this more irony?
