"Now's not the time to get silly, so wear your big boots and jump on the garbage clowns." — Bob Dylan?

"Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes" — Walt Whitman

I skim some people's posts.  I admit it. But I tend to not respond to those people either, so it doesn't really matter.
