Consider: "Cynical realism – it is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation."
"It is better to be drunk with loss and to beat the ground, than to let the deeper things gradually escape."
- I. Compton-Burnett, letter to Francis King (1969)
- Aldous Huxley, "Time Must Have a Stop"
"Cynical realism – it is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation."

I passed the MediaBistro event invite along because I couldn't get away from the Rue Daguerre. Alas, although softvall is a sissy game, I'm afraid I'll hurt my fingers. Besides I got no depth perception. I see from your in-depth report that there were five players on each side. I can only play whichever outfield nobody will hit to. Usually I fall asleep. My batting is not good either. My golf is lousy too. This is why I live in Paris. The only thing I miss here is the Mets! Go Mets!
