Re: [-empyre-] WHO DAT? AN WHO US?

Free Tirade Agreement it is! I'll have to issue an executive order... because I sense everywhere I go, including this list, that there is enormous pent-up, cynicism waiting to be released. We need a Grand Catharsis and this sounds just the thing!


But of course, Randall. Howard Barker, the English dramatist, once stated -
possibly in socio-poetic self-defense - 'complexity is itself a political
position of some strength' - but then at the time there was a left left.
Are you proposing a Free Tirade Agreement? Or do disinformation and the
application of deconstructive strategies suffice in the artistic-engagement

 Simon: would you be interested in a position in the Department as
 Official Wordsmith and Speech Crafter? Perhaps an Under Secretary
 role... You have brilliantly captured our efforts to articulate
 multiple layerings of meaning as socio-poetic antidote to the
 pervasiveness of bureau-speak that threatens us as a free,
 imaginative, and creative people!
