Shoot, I allus figgered the Clavister had sufficient DARKNESS in his soul

to be able to understand that you can't just tell somebody who's CLINICALLY

DEPRESSED to CHEER UP. How old do you have to be to understand that

NENSLO's soul is NOT the light and geometrical precision of a Mondrian,

but instead the darkness and writhing of a George Groscz, that Pete

Hipwell's life is not a Monty Python sketch, but BLACK AND TERRIBLE as

Waiting for Godot.


Myself, I'm an old ROGUE SubGenius. I don't get into this HATE versus LOVE

stuff. I notice MereHumes the same way an old rogue elephant might get

annoyed at the vast herd of wildebeest crapping all over the Serengeti--but

HATE? What would be the point? You couldn't kill enough of them to matter,

and anyway their corpses would be EVEN WORSE than the crap.


No, HATE is to be reserved for GREAT COSMIC FORCES. And relatives.

Actually EX-relatives. It turns out that my ex-son-in-law is even worse in

the Makes-My-Teeth-Grind Sweepstakes than my ex-wife. Which I would not

have beleived possible.


That's what's so laughable about this rash of 14 and 15 year-old WUSSES

going postal and blowing out their little playmate's brains. GIMME A BREAK!

Experienced an overload of angst AT THEIR AGE? WITHOUT AN EX-WIFE? HAW! As

Tarla points out, at their age "you have yet to meet half the assholes

you're gonna meet in your life." HALF? Again HAW! More like three-fourths

or seven-eighths. AND they still have a HUGE RATION of mistakes, screw-ups,

blunders and terrible injuries to old friends to live to regret.
