Hey, eph. Well, hell, it's Friday night. But, you OK?
OK, here's my thing: I put a lot into EM. So did lots of people, I'm not claiming anything that lots of others couldn't. I guess what it boils down to is that in the short period that EM flourished I felt myself to be a part of it.
(And considering the lifespans of EM and babble, I have a whole new understanding and respect for what the early and consistent babblers felt when babble blew up. And, again, given that, what early and consistent EMers/former babblers felt. . . .)
I don't want to give up the field. If we let them. . . (Oh, gwad, am I going to channel G.Bush?) the terrists will win. . .
Hell. I dunno.
