Pretty much sums up the whole shebang. Remarkably, I did not read the previous three days correpsondance between SFJ and Gerald Marzorati that preceded the Slate piece that I quoted earlier. But I think still that I did well for firing off a quick morning post before I had any coffee.
"I walk on rough ground" refers to a line in Wittgenstein's Philosophic Investigations regarding language not working on ice, but only when it get's traction. I got a lot of traction today--thanks for the feedback!
