POETIC THANKS ANYWAY

“Technological progress has its downside: complexity, obsfucation, lack of depth, alienation; homo sapiens become homo economicus and now auto-sapiens; quantity becomes quality (although it is clear enough that more is not always better) and the wrappings are the package. It is time to take time with the poets and listen to the raindrops, time to read again the myth of the Tower of Babel, and to rediscover the lessons of entropy in everyday life.”
–Leonidas Petrakis, Scientist and Think-Tank member

Sorry, mate, but you’re on my dime,
and we done run plumb out of time.

    Mister Petrakis deserves most of the credit, despite my having a few words of fun at his expanse. I thank you on his behalf.

    Good one, Don – I take it you had this epitaph in mind:

    Here lies Lester Moore
    Four slugs from a .44 —
    No Les, no more.
