    OK two thoughts for today



    After all is said and done; it’s a shiny piece of metal with wax on it, nothing serious enough to cause a cataclysmic rift in the space / time continuum.

    Timely quote, what with the HBO movie about him and Marty just having been released!



    The way Hemingway left so much unsaid results in much of what he was trying to get across going right over the head of the "average reader", especially these days.



    This is one reason why it can bug me when young students are required to read his work. Unless the teacher is *VERY* good (oh, get me going on that one ) there`s no way for them to appreciate the stuff, so it becomes just more "crap [I] had to read in school, nothing all that great"; they carry that opinion through adulthood and lose out on much of what he had to teach us.

    Ah, another one that resonates with me!



    Epicurus is another sage who`s been misinterpreted, misunderstood, and consigned to "crap from school". Sheesh, just look at the colloquial meaning of "epicurean"

    Heh heh, well....yeah. Those two TFtD got me up on my soapbox about the way certain folks have been misinterpreted, misunderstood, and often even vilified by people who settle for, uhm...superficial processing.
