    If you've started talking to the furniture, Doc, I think it's time for you to put the books away and get some fresh air. :D
    Perhaps, like Cabell's John Charteris in Beyond Life, he's determined to lecture
    to bare benches, if necessary. ;)

      Thanks, Carter. That's probably the best part of Annie Hall. (It's got some other
      moments, too, of course.) It's been years since I saw the movie.

      When does some one pop into the forum to pull rank on Doc? Whom would we
      nominate? Karl Marx is no longer available, unfortunately. Perhaps we could get
      John Kenneth Galbraith to dodder on stage. I can hear it now: "Under capitalism,
      man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite."

      Anyone can and should pull rank on me at any time. My degrees are silly pieces of paper, and my position is largely a big soapbox. Especially now that I've taken to talking to furniture. :lol: The benches await me!

      • My neighbor has a couch sitting on his driveway.
        There's a sign on it that says: FREE.

        It's colored navy blue, with stripes in the center of the cusions that are colored tan and brown... hmmm... now that I think of it the browns probably weren't there originally. But still, it's not the worst couch I've ever seen.

        C'mon. It's free!

        Got more room in your office, Doc?

        Anyone?

          Oh, Doc, Doc, Doc.... Stuff like this only encourages me! :P
