A final question… (Jack Grant)
Joe has been kind enough to allow me one more day to post after his return from his grueling weekend journey (boy, I’m glad I don’t have his job…). I would like to thank Joe for the opportunity he gave me to guest-post here. Unfortunately, this has been far from my best work, but I try to remember the words of Jean Giraudoux, "Only the mediocre are always at their best."
On my weblog Random Fate I often ask questions that I strive not to suggest answers to but instead ask for readers to think about it beyond their first reaction. One such case has arisen today from something I read on Pennywit.com, where he asks a question that I believe has very broad implications.
