Why sure, Victor.

Barnum&Bailey&Vitanza present:

The Greatest Rhetorical Show on Earth!

Nomadic feminist cyborg guerillas on the high wire!

Technorhetorician mud wrestling!

SteveK probably thinks I'm just being silly! But I'm not!

(this really is a thing to think about. If Victor's the ringmaster, I'll
sign on! And, Charles, what makes you think escaping the academy
*necessarily* means bedding down with the corporation? Are you sure that
those old institutions are the only places available? or are there other
places, other communities where the abilities of scholars and teachers are
needed and valued? I reckon it's a good time to unleash imaginations. Be
entrepreneurial. If the choice is between the university and the board
room, maybe we need to make a new place!)

the future will become vivid
spreadsheets will crumble before creativity
information will marry entertainment
they will have many children
