I think a poll is premature, Darius. I don't think there's a well-
defined, generally-accepted idea of what a college is, or
specifically how we would be better off with one than we are now
without one. Until those ideas are at least *somewhat* clarified, I
can't answer that question.
(Apparently, given past history, folks are reluctant to quantify
anything at this stage of the game. That's very understandable, and I
hold nothing against folks for that. But it makes it hard to get any
traction with this discussion, let alone a poll.)
I'm curious about the "ferret tossing" poetic form, though. Could
that be done as a Norse edda? How about a sonnet?
Oh, who am I kidding. I'm a musician, not a poet. I should stick to
playing the slide ferret, and just be happy.
