      The standard that suggests all language has its root deep in the cognitive functions of my species, is one I find very depressing.  I say this because it suggests to me that meaning through language will always be a reflection of these structures.  And there I was thinking perhaps if I spoke Ateso or German or Balinese, I'd be at least wittier.

      I also find it very depressing when people curl a lip at Wittgenstein's "that which cannot be uttered........"  Then go on to accuse him of a total absence of usefulness.  I'd call them all bastards, but for two things. Today is my Friday and I have realized why there is a special place in my heart for those who are 'clinically' insane..
