So Todd, are you going to check in and share your trip with us? And perhaps your meeting with Ma and her minions? Share or not at your chosing.

AAR (after action report)


I ain't happy,
I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless but
Not for long
The future is coming on. (Gorillaz)

end of report.

This is a major position statement on Nothing.

ZoWie does not want Nothing. At no time has ZoWie ever said to do Nothing. ZoWie has a hat that says Do Something, though in this case Something refers to social programs in Los Angeles. Different context, same idea.

In both cases, to do Nothing is absurd. It is a self-cancelling Nothing, because in fact it is doing Something, but Something that amounts to Nothing. ZoWie does not want Nothing. ZoWie wants not-Nothing. ZoWie wants Something. It's that mean ol' existential-agent gene kicking in again, what can ZoWie do?

ZoWie, at present, does not have a great deal of confidence that our certain Something will be better than Nothing, but Zowie does not want Nothing, because Nothing is Something bad in this particular context.

ZoWie thinks that a limited, carefully planned Something is better than Nothing, even if it does last the many years of Something that are being threatened, because after all it will be productive Something, which as we have seen is better than Nothing. However, ZoWie fears a CNN-motivated feel-good Something with no brains, which is worse than Nothing. It is Nothing With Too Many Dead Bodies. In this case, Nothing from Nothing is Nothing, and smells worse.

I have nothing more to say about Nothing.

zowie, well put, I have nothing to add....
or, to put it another way, let me add some productive nothing to your's.. your nothing, that is...and, with that, I have nothing, more, to add....

since we're up to 14 pages and nothing is being dealt with, this would probably be a good point to close and open something??

arnie??

14 pages is a lot of Nothing. That's really Something.
