Going gets gone when it calls its shot. Statements that rankle wear shirts that wrinkle. Symbiosis, yes, the linguistic arbiters feed on the owners of the means of willing. It's a dialectic! Spared by the uneasy conflict, these two teams play in the advertising bowl, eating the hot cheat sheets before the pretzels. Why write? Why win? I've got no beef; didn't have the stomach for the houses where cows go. Reification doesn't smell compelling either; who one is requires no math. Biographies are the perfectly appropriate relation between the chronicle and its creators; I will watch the commercial and save the documentary for the supremely rainy day. Millennialism has a beginning of the world problem: a thousand years is harder to count than a calendar's dreams. And who's really asleep when time zones are revealed for what they've always been: a journalistic cabal to cable out to the universe the crisis of the capital plot.
