That makes three people that aren't joining hands and freeing egos. Have you started a petition yet? Here's a good title: "Save the Old Earth, First."

Ha, ha! I love it! (I especially love how you reveal your own philosophical bent: "That makes three people that aren't joining hands and freeing egos." Very well-put! I admit, I'm more interested in aesthetics and epistemology than in metaphysics--although, and I'm sure I don't need to point this out but will do so anyway, it should be said that all three are often very much connected.)

Every time a customer asks me if I've read the latest best-selling tome of this ilk, I have to bite my tongue to keep from sputtering, "Never! Give me the real stuff!" Sigh. I'm afraid this makes me elitist. But I guess even Marx allowed for a certain degree of elitism. ; )
