    The sublety, nuance, savoir faire seem to have drained out of DailyKos recently, don't you think? Seldom any more do I have the sense that I can communicate here with precision or depth, neither in being serious (as in the above review of the mechanics of the XIIth Amdmt) nor in being gloriously silly. [Aside: one of my fond memories of my participation here is of a sequence of back-and-forths with you years ago riffing on the names of Senators; it was a lot of Crapo but it spun a Webb that was Franken-Lee fun.]

    I came in this diary many hours ago expecting it to be a vehicle for exactly some of that but found my hopes deflated quickly.  Meanwhile, there is a conversation elsewhere about a climate scientist who is a Republican where the question is not "What does he know (think) that I don't?" but instead "How corrupt must he be not to  acknowledge that of which I am certain?"

    I dunno. It's late (perhaps in a couple ways). I admire immensely what you've accomplished in Irvine but - very selfishly - I've missed you (and several others) around here.

      if I ever get to retire, I want to retire right here, for just such conversations!
