Re: [Phys-L] the logic behind some illogic (John Denker)

I read Kyle's piece this morning, and It was pleasing to my eye: I heard disquisition of a kind that I applaud as enlightening.

Then I pondered why this was so acceptable, in contrast with the note that evoked it. I suspect it concerns the dreadful earnestness, even righteousness that can infect list members who feel they are carrying the sacred flame. Not at all sure how one would provide enlightenment without in some way carrying a luminous flame into some dark corner, so perhaps it owes only to that sad human frailty in matters of partiality and taste - the human factors that color the judgment.

Anyway: Thanks!
