	When the old fight,
	it is the young who die.
	When the rich fight,
	it is the poor who die.
	If it were up to the old and the rich
	to do the dying,
	we would have no more wars.

	When we are young, we are driven.
	When old, we wonder what it was that drove us.

	It is not easy writing for readers
	who already know everything they need to know,
	even if what they really know
	happens to be recycled mumbo jumbo.

	If verbal diarrhea were writing
	and mental masturbation thinking,
	every speechifier and sermonizer
	and every partisan and dupe
	would be another candidate for the Nobel Prize.
