"[T]he art of writing--the test of the artist--is to resist the beguilement and cleave the subject." (Barbara Tuchman, Practicing History: Selected Essays "In Search of History," 13, Knopf, 1981.)

Resisting cleverness is good advice. I hate re-reading my posts wherein I was too focused on wit.

I'm sure after the movie premiers, he'll be posting like mad!
