Had to do it. Usually I lurk.
Plato hits the nail on the head. Plato provides a pass through rivers of
b.s. and valleys of pretentious crap. Plato reins in our anal tendencies.
Plato has acute insight into our world. Plato always answers my questions.
Plato knows of what he speaks. Plato doesn't preach. Plato teaches. Plato
COMMUNICATES. Plato should be making tons of money writing a comic strip
about engineers, bosses, and sensitive technical writers (alas, too late!).
Lots of other people answer my questions, too. I extend my gratitude. Lots
of people make me role my eyes Heavenward and pray thankfully, "There but
for the grace of Plato, go I."
Take it easy y'all!
