26 Proteus 2 weeks ago I believe it was the imminent American philosopher George Santayana who said: "Aw geez, not this crap again". As philosophies go, it was a work in progress. And yet it perfectly sums up the whole of everything everywhere everytime. As a philosophy, it didn't really need more work. Of course, it wouldn't make a very long speech at a symposium, and the organizers might not even give the philosopher who expounded it a stipend or free lunch at the buffet.
