Disclaimer: this is not to say in any way whatsoever that I support Tim’s views on anything else, or his proposed solutions.  It’s not like I collect his works or anything, he just happens to thrive at acknowledging with blunt force & anger that which I’ve come to see as tragi-comic in my own dark, wrong planet way.
