Beardrech, your absence has been noted and mourned, and your reappearance is welcome and celebrated. The Poet Stooleate returns. Indeed, the greatest blow to our collective FURce of good and rational is not the losses many of us have sustained, but rather the multipronged attack on our confidence at best, and our sanity at worst. And, you are, as ever, entirely correct. Al Green and his bully boyz and ruffians and thugs are little more than that, and their bark packs only the bite we inflict upon ourselves. For the ocean is ineffable, its force unknowable, its vastness unfathomable. Al Green's little waves are drops within it.
