Please, Lord E, you know darn well there has to be a topic before you can go off it. Interesting stuff, though. I really wish I had a comment on the actual work; it was an intruiging read. Don't really know what my preference is, probably more Archy's view of the matter. Re-incarnation of a poet as a roach, eh? Reminds me of the end of Dave Barry's article on insect intelligence:<P><i>"In conclusion, we see that the issue of insect intelligence is not as simple as we thought it was before we started to think about it. So the next time a mosquito lands on our arm, and we are tempted to whack it, we should pause and remind ourselves that the mosquito is a thinking being just like us; and that, with the proper training and encouragement, it might be able not only to count and run mazes, but perhaps also to laugh, to sing, to philosophize, even to write poetry.
And then we would whack it. Because we hate poetry."</i><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>And don't worry so much about inducing activity on the forum; if it happens, it happens. Not that that should stop you from posting, of course. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P><a href="http://chrisandcrew.keenspace.com">CJ</a>
