Missing the Point
My new phone lets me see where I am. But I'd rather have one that showed me where you are. Technology has a way of pumping the blood back into metaphors. I hear Stanley's bray subdividing down corridors that smell of sassafras. You're shining somewhere behind the ridge. I can just make out its edge. If I pull back, we'll be on the same map. Distance makes me pale.

I want one that shows me where THEY are.

That would require a veritable Milky Way of points on the map, I'm afraid. You'll need a much bigger screen.

It's true then... THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!

It depends what degree of density you're registering, but yes, they're everywhere.

Down?

Are you "down" for Couchhenge?

Re: Down?

I am fearful of being arrested. But I am definitely down in spirit.

Re: Down?

Dude! You just need a calabash pipe and "credentials" and you say, "Hup! Hup! Gentleman, I am Professor Bertsch here... here... where is that card? Where is that ID card? I fear I may have left it in my other cardigan... No, no... here it is my fine fellows. As you can see, this is University related business... while you're here, you may as well and give us a hand... [distracted] NO TORVO! Put that down [you whip TORVO with a riding crop] as you gentleman can see, the University is not too proud to assign me defective aides-de-camp..."
