Meta-Free-For-All

My cold is getting better -- should be fully verbal again soon.

In the meantime, for anyone else who hasn't seen it, a clip of the figural-language throw-down between Sean Penn and Stephen Colbert, moderated by Robert Pinsky:

hold on now.
i've left off complaining
of all the video & audio
(useless to me & not
what i'd be here for
even if i had the ware withal).

but you seem to have *replaced*
a perfectly interesting post
(linking to a recent review)
with three videos.

what the heck?

I don't know what you mean.

well, it's the weirdest thing.
i read the link posted may 7
(and the review it links to);
went away (without further
reading at _quick_study_);
came back;
and found the may 5 link
at the top of the screen.
scrolled down; no sign
of the material i'd just read
earlier this morning.

this seems to have caused me
to jump to the (false) conclusion
that you'd deleted an entry
i liked in favor of
stuff i didn't care about.

sorry for the confusion.
probably comes of working
at several different computers.
maybe one of 'em had _qs_
in a "cache" or something
and i got an out-of-date page.

anyhow, certainly nothing
*you've* done wrong ...
thank you and good day.
