    the grim secret behind all US treaties.

    The US-Soviet summit in Reykjavik? It was all a ruse, to distract media coverage from Reagan's embarrassing preference for jelly beans.

    Nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of non-thought. -- Milan Kundera
