Nobody much cares what brand of intellectual duct tape is being used.richard rorty

"What is the Unpardonable Sin?" asked the lime-burner; and then he shrank farther from his companion, trembling lest his question should be answered. "It is a sin that grew within my own breast," replied Ethan brand, standing erect with a pride that distinguishes all enthusiasts of his stamp. "A sin that grew nowhere else!
