fuster: this was every bit as light as depleted uranium latkes.

But such generous portions! (I could spend another week proofreading and correcting, I fear.)

As for the rest, apparently you discovered reasons enough, day after day, so maybe it's just a question of accepting them - either that or accepting that it's not a matter of reasons... in which case the ideation would likely serve other needs or originate somewhere else. Knowing what a smart phrog you are, I suspect you've probably already thought that through, too.

Actually, as I noted on Twitter, this was the light piece I ended up writing because the piece I was doing on genocide was too bleak.
