Being that as it MAY
Original post made by Oxymo Ron on May 12, 2008
The rich contribution of Informed Resident ("Info Res"), Alamo Ron, Krak Potts, Forest Warn and all those that challenge us to think with reality and oxymorons on reality should be invited to challenge our corridor of neighbors to consider their positions.
Thus, allow me to start this forum not on issues but the concept of discussions that surround our corridor's issues. Info Res, Alamo Ron, Krak Potts, Fore Warn and more make us think about our approach to commentary and how we research information.
That's the subject and we want "Commentary for Dummies" to be the issue. Thoughtful comment and a smile or three would be great consideration for us all.

Ah, I didn't realize we were so close that we were interchangeable!
In the humor of current and former neighbors in our Diablo Vista region we have enjoyed the fun of screen names that illustrate the humorists among us. We have all been humorists. Since we were all called crack pots, I became Krak Potts just to fulfill a vision of our majority.
It is quite true that we are all a composite of all we hold close and therefore I am not sure we are not all of ourselves together. But it does sound like a song John Lennon didn't write.
Thus, going forward, may I recommend we be,
The sum of tomfoolery

Thoughts would be good. I'd like to see some - they're notably lacking.
Case in point:
Oxymo Ron asks for "discussions that surround our corridor's issues"...and would "make us think about our approach to commentary and how we research information."
Nice turn of phrase but regrettably devoid of content.
This sounds strangely like having pre-planning meeting to plan the pre-meeting's meeting.
Rather than thinking about our approach to commentary, why don't we just talk and dispense with null contructs?

Dear Alamo Ron,
Your comments were exceptional and point to wisdom learned over many years in the former Silicon Valley:
#1 - If you really DON'T have nothing to say, be vague and lengthy.
#2 - Make it more important what you didn't say, as in Verning, the process of implying meaning unsaid.
#3 - In humor, together, we proved an accordian is a violin designed by a committee and the bag pipe is its compromise.
I feel better, how about you?
