this too, shall pass.



DON'T PANIC.

these words, inscribed in large, friendly letters
on the cover of the _hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy_,
are worth bearing in mind once again.

i have faith that the parties responsible for recent
threads such as "kurt cobain -- good? bad?" and 
"are we debating too much?  yes we are.  no we're not!"
and "stop the crass personal attacks, you son of swine!"
will soon sit back, take a deep breath, and have cause
to regret some of their words.

i have a feeling that a lot of the emotional posts
on sloan net lately have more to do with end-of-term
stress than anything else.

in the meantime, let me suggest that we assume the
cross-legged position and recite the simple four-
syllable mantra, "less tuck, no action, less tuck,
no action..."

watch for my forthcoming book from harper-collins,
_zen and the art of mail-list maintenance_.
