I was watching the season premiere of Madmen
and Roger Sterling had the following quote to
his psychiatrist:

"What are the events in life? Like, you see a door.
The first time you come to it, you say, Oh, whats on
the other side of the door? Then you open a few doors
and then you say, I think I want to go over a bridge
this time. Im tired of doors. Finally you go through
one of these things, and you come out the other side,
and you realize thats all there are: doors! And windows,
and bridges, and gates. And they all open the same way.
And they all close behind you. Look, life is supposed to
be a path, and you go along, and these things happen to
you, and theyre supposed to change your direction, but
it turns out thats not true.  Turns out the experiences
are nothing. Theyre just pennies you pick up off the floor,
stick in your pocket, and youre just going in a straight
line to you-know-where."

***. He's right.

Good thing I still have rec.sport.football.college.

Please don't go away.

I know I need to!  Break on through the doors of perception!

To:  MB - I'm not going away, besides the occasional trip.
