Humble request for new forum : in the same spirit of meaningless drivel, I would like to propose meaningful elenchus (a la Socrates Cafe, see below links)
Some the meaningless drivel is pure nonsense and some really is quite profound. I wonder if the two were separated what would happen??
Socrates Cafe is an awesome book that folks, who spend any time in MD, will most likely fly through on a rainy weekend.

You know - we talked about this alot. Especially right after 9-11 when there was ALOT of heated political discussion. At any rate it was decided that separately they would not be as cool as intermixed.
