Apology to MW #321 (For October 16, 1999)

I'm berated for intelligence you're advised that I'm without,
but it's not me that's laughing up my sleeve -- _you_ do
without. It's not me that figures with my metrics all mixed up
in an English that is awkward, and outdated, clumsy, -- rough.
And this is what they'd have you think if they would have their
way, that this is why the probe was lost -- was burnt up, "gone"
they say. It was teaspoons used for liters (?), or a gram was
used for pounds; English used for metric? It's astounding! It
confounds! On the face a simple problem that Joe Sixpack
understands. The *bother* of translation was an _early_ problem,
Stan. But science has a language that it prides itself upon, and
metric is that measure that they drag their carts along!

This insult to intelligence will, likely, _not_ be challenged,
and makes me wonder what _else_ hides -- so equally
unchallenged. These were figures checked and rechecked 'till
they fairly shrieked and screamed. These figures were not *pen
and ink*, and wrought by hand, you see? Computers crunched
_these_ numbers, and they'd done it fine before. Why was _this_
time different? Did a monkey mind the store? Dimensional
analysis is what they would have used... for someone
_needing_ (?) English so "a probe" is not abused. Computers
count parameters that WE can _not_ keep straight! The numbers
are exceeded and alarms should go off -- great! Apples used for
oranges in the midst of it's correction? How can we assume
that's right -- entertain the mere suggestion? It transcends the
simply ludicrous, and exceeds the merely stupid. Profoundly so
retarded, it is dumb, and just not lucid.

It is, in fact, so _dumb_,  you see, it cannot be an accident.
It must be, somehow, sabotage (?), or some *other* kind of
happenstance. Perhaps these craft are flying _well_, and tucked
down in position. They're right where we could WANT them, and
they're working in precision. What they *see* we cannot say, but
what if *weird's* the case; they're seeing ancient cities or
another solemn face! We're not privy to the info that has bled
our pockets dry (the Russians sold us "Dreamland" -- our own
lies to us is why). What is hidden from us, truly, so deep
within the bowels of a cold-as-ice bureaucracy that festers,
creeps, and fouls? What "national security", that's had _no_
oversight, has kept at bay corruption that infests the _rest_ --

What of all these satellites, these high tech probes and such.
Do you really think it likely that we screw up quite _that_
much. This is stuff we _pay_ for, and the value back to us is
the knowledge they've been hiding (?) which betrays the public
trust. Distrust is plain, there are no good guys -- Waco makes
this clear. Wherever there's no oversight the cost is just too
dear. What falls through *cracks* by some design would probably
save us grief in time, but that would *upset* all the plans of
those that live well -- understand? The multiverse is such a
creature... filled with all the tricks and features -- quite
beyond the common pale a man would think could _be_ detailed!!!
This is what our probes are seeing, change that's rampant, fluid
-- breathing.

Someone knows the secrets that would light this powder keg. Lit
off SOONER I propose that it would not have been as great! Lit
off sooner makes it useful as a righteous tool for change. Lit
off sooner keeps it interesting; we improve when things get
strange! Lit off sooner it's a profit, found out later -- missed
the boat, and all that's left to take its place still has you by
your throat. Someone knows the secrets that are fanned to some
distinction by apologists for darkness fanning murky
imprecision. Someone knows the secrets that would point to weak
foundations that are, likely, built on thinking that won't work,
or be courageous.

A nation shall not prosper if it fears its very own. A nation
not forthcoming is a tyrant on a throne. A nation that routinely
preys upon the public trust is a nation one revolts against, or
Jefferson's a bust. He said -- " . . .by its operation in [the
slowness of design] power becomes tyranny, and is corrupted so
in time." He said it's operation must be thwarted at all cost,
so folks _must_ be enlightened or, it's all we've gained that's
lost. SHOW us what our money buys! Open wide _our_ doors! Let us
see what's cooking at the center -- at the core. Let us know
*reality* so plans get made that fly, and we can soar, then, to
our fate, and know the reason why!


Somebody knows, perceives it as an upset to personal apple carts
-- and so diligently  fans the ubiquitous murk.  The worst with
a passionate intensity, and the best bereft of all conviction...
to paraphrase elitist dead poets.

A conservative estimate puts three full blown sociopaths in with
every ninety-seven people. Sociopaths take care of themselves at
the expense of other people by definition, and are, by
definition, not crazy. A sociopath can fan your murk for profit
and never bat an eye, and only a sociopath would use profit as
an excuse to keep the rest of us from inevitable and unavoidable
change. With 3% at a minimum it is likely that one is making
your decisions for you -- profiting at your expense. If it can
be unethically, but profitably  done there are those that will
find it out and take their profit from it. They're _not_
shielding your delicate sensibilities, they are not saving you
from some awful truth -- they are hiding something it would be
to your profit to know... and making a killing in the
bargain! Killing hell -- it's murder. And, all the time, they
laugh as they train YOUR kid not to be a leader in the next
