The conversation continues ...

... `Enlivened'. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Earlier today, I happened to read Wallace Stevens's "Esthetique du Mal." These lines in particular caught my attention:

Is the affair of logical lunatics.
The politics of emotion must appear
To be an intellectual structure. The cause
Creates a logic not to be distinguished
From lunacy ...

Ponder that. It is more to the point than anything you will read on any op-ed page.
