I'm sorry; the only way I know how to digest this one-paragraph-thang 
is sentence-by-sentence and I hope that's okay.

Actually, Eudora got that part wrong. That's the part that I wrote.

Well, I'm not sure. I know this: We _never_ have enough; that's the 
foundation of our economy! Definitive Zing? I'll take a pint. And my 
posterity has gone the way of my liver.

Sorry, this is confusing...I know of several fuckked cul de sacs on 
several continents although I've only ever read the *comic book* 
version of foucault.
Cynical? We still have the GPL, for now...  Granted, I don't live in 
a police state, our police still ride horses, and that's okay with 
us, since the General Strike we know how to deal with police on 
horseback. In fact, since Kananaskis, they've been known as the 
*polite Police*.

*Police on the motherboard* is not for us either. But seriously: 
using some kind of *pretty good privacy* tool is a pretty good idea, 
even on horseback.

I'm taking this chunk as a sentence.

I think Stockhausen put it best when he said that the unsigned piece 
*sept 11 in nyc* (forever known as 9/11) is an act of art created by 
the artist Lucifer. Lucidity? ...And Safety is a consumer product, to 
be sure. Even Microsoft Corporation dares to sell Safety.

Foucault and Lucifer; leather wings. I like that. And Crows. I know 
someone who lives with a Crow.


As far as the celebrated French adroit-ness at describing our chaos 
in a word or two that helps you to sleep better at night, I think 
that foucaldien is appropriate, these foucaldien times; he was a 
lover of prisons and really, couldn't you say that the Monkey is 
numero uno at creating and running prisons for it's own Other... just 
look at Colombia, or Microsoft... the angel of prisons visiting us in 
our Palladium cells to bring us news of the discord..with automatic 
upgrades and authentication (notification of the proper authorities)

Did I imagine?

All value was gone before 9/11; only now is this kind of pre-taoist 
idea on everybody's minds, memetic-ly distributed across the homey 
pr-meme network, even reaching the ears of the Emperor. Do what thou 
Wilt...


Did I answer your question?
