Really; and don't get me wrong, because I would have him suggesting a proctological exam for everyone on the jury.

But thinking actually does get easier if you can do it in an organized and rational fashion. What is that line from Marcus Aurelius from Silence of the Lambs: The thing in itself. When you are juggling a cloud of definitions around your head it helps to know they will not suddenly transform into hornet. Ideas can be deadly. We have seen in recent history the tyranny of the idea, and the republicans are still bowing before theirs. Let us not be like them, but make our ideas serve us, and do as we say.
