Since the COVID thing started, we’ve experienced a massive spike in demand. So the plant is working overtime, and so am I! That means that time available for me to devote to IP is pretty much non-existent. Hence I won’t be able to post a normal entry this month - I’ve just been way too busy! I did have a couple entries planned, but I had to back-burner them for the time being.
Similarly for all the email I’ve received over the last couple months from readers. I’ve simply not been able to keep up, but I do wildly appreciate all the feedback, suggestions and questions. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get back to everyone, so please don’t think I’m simply ignoring you.
M.A.: Not sure about the linguini part, but please stop doing that to your cat.
T.B.: Try again, and pay more attention to punctuation this time, especially in your second paragraph. Kind of important!
N.D.: Check out Kelley’s The Evidence of the Senses, pp. 121f.
T1000: No, I have not flown in the space shuttle. (Not sure I’d want to!)
W.H. You’re right - two ribs on a subway. How the hell did you know that? Did I mention that somewhere?
Drago245: I totally agree, a jump page for my WSIBC entries would be a good idea. It’s on my to-do list in fact.
J.G.: True, but fish do have eyes. So I don’t see how your conclusion follows.
Rake58: Yes, Gubaidulina’s works are very intense. Check out her bassoon concerto sometime. Not for weak hearts!
DDS Villain: What would count as a quorum in that case?
Uz10mm: I haven’t tried that - sounds painful. I agree with you about the knee part.
W.R.F. Only twice, and it made me really drowsy.
Khon-Kanimal: Five in Bangkapi District, twice in Sathorn, none in Din Daeng (mainly due to traffic).
H.U.: Thanks for the tilapia recipe. I’ll have to try that!
SassyJ: Fun story! But what was happening in the back alley all along? See, you didn’t count on that!
Snail Darter Casserole: Your sonata is coming along fine, though two suggestions: lay off the pedal mm. 59-73 (for contrast) and modulate to the relative minor *before* the coda. Should be good to go!
Uz10mm: Regarding tobacco- yes, but I quit in the 80’s; regarding the other thing – never heard of it.
Kafka Lover: Thanks for the suggestion.
LFT: See here for starters.
F.Z.: No, I sold the villa years ago. Big mistake!
JC4UNMe: Coffee and donuts as evidence for the existence of God? Perhaps, but not if they have those little sprinkles.
TU-85: That seems to be a variant of this, which I’ve already addressed.
MTL1212: Great question about Sartre. I’ll hopefully be able to answer before the year is out.
Laredus: Yes, I saw that about Steve Hays. So tragic! What will apologists do now?
Mater Spero: Hmmm… I’m still not convinced. Keep trying.
Bigelow 2.0: Nc7. Your move.
