your small west-of-town suburban centrist

philosophy of governance that embraces

a mix of market & interventionist philosophies

irks me every sunday. this third way you

propound (if only in thought-waves) rejects

both top-down redistribution & laissez-faire

approaches & therefore a range of bristly

academics are behind your busted imago, hiding

under the bed or something. to wit economic

governance is daft, but the stresses of technological

development feel real: education is a competitive

mechanism designed to pursue the devils (or

the capitalist-socialist hybridizers) lurking

in the details. your sexy look argues you are

in favour of neo-liberalism; the smell of chips

on the wind pursues the bottom line of adjectives

& fuzzy compromises. i want to smile a touché.
