Link to Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic

After the letter writing campaigns of the NRC Project and the Math Project dyslexic was added to Recordings for the Blind.


Counselor:  So you did that?


I’m not saying that, I wrote letters criticizing the copyright law that did not allow the recordings to be shared with the dyslexic, and then they changed their name, it was just one of those coincidences.

        The Moynihan Theorem :                     

The conservative insight is that culture matters more than politics.     

The liberal insight is that through politics we can save ourselves from ourselves.

Entrance Exam
What is the great Constitutional crisis facing the United States in the Twenty First Century, according to Doctor Professor Daniel Patrick Moynihan?
DPM:  Now,  did I use  that word:  "crisis?" Did I actually use that word?


New Rsukin College, at Mt. Watts, Castalia


Well no Sir.  You used the word problem.  You see the students . . . in order to keep their interest you see. . . They like . . . it makes it seem more important . . . more dramatic.   I was trying to liven it up . . . for the students . . .  ah,  you see.

DPM:  I think I called it a problem.  Yes a problem to be worked.  Not a crisis to be “faced.”  That puts it a little too starkly doesn’t it.

Yes Sir.  But again to keep the interest of the students  . . .

DPM:  But surely this is one of the first lessons we must teach them?  Don’t you think?  Work the problems so they do not become  “crises.”  Yes, not as dramatic, but  that is our point isn’t it?

Yes, Sir.

DPM:  If we do our job well the people will never know what crises they have been spared,  right?

Yes, Sir, Doctor Professor.  This is the Way of the Tao.  Yes, Sir.

Entrance Exam:

What is the great Constitutional problem that the United States of America must work on in the Twenty First Century, according to Doctor Professor Daniel Patrick Moynihan?

DPM:  Yes, now that’s much better, don’t you see?

Yes, Sir, Doctor Professor.     


Oppy was a village not far from Vimy. Fortified by the Germans, it withstood the assaults of the British, Canadian and French troops until September 1918. Although not the most famous of his war paintings, John Nash's painting depicts with careful didacticism the circumstances of the confrontation - the destruction of nature, the plain ravaged by shell-holes which had been turned into lakes, shelters dug deep in the ground, and trenches with cemented floors and arches reinforced by sheet metal, and - once again - the immobility, the void, the lookout on his watch with his face at ground level among the roots and clods of earth. Unlike his elder brother Paul, John Nash favoured a painstaking naturalist style with geometrical schematisations.

West Point


Counselor:  Remember what President Bush told you at West Point?

President Bush?  You mean his father?

Counselor:  Yes, Bush 41, when he was President he went to West Point and talked to the students?


Counselor:  What?

The students at West Point.  They are called cadets.

Counselor:  Right. Remember?  You thought what he said to the cadets was unusual?

Well, yeah, I don’t think the cadets of West Point have a reputation for “brow beating people.”  I think they have a reputation for saying, ‘Sir, yes sir.”

Counselor:  But it was good advise.   What he said was pretty good advise to anyone.  He said, “You will not get very far brow beating people.”  And you thought he was talking to you.  You imagined the cadets going back to their dorms ---


Counselor:  Right to their barracks.  And you imagined them changing into their casual clothes ---


Counselor: Yes, and you imagined them talking about what their Commander in Chief had just said to them in his speech . . .

It was pretty unusual.  I thought they might have said something like, ‘Why did the old man come up here and tell us off . . . what did we do?   Who have we been brow beating?  Has someone been complaining . . .’ something like that.

Counselor:  So you thought that part of the speech probably wasn’t meant for them.

I had just written a,  ah,  . . . a harsh letter to some Senator or other. Maybe a little too . . . harsh.

Counselor:  But still, it was pretty good advise no matter who it was directed towards wasn’t it?

What is it with you?  You always take everyone’s side against me!  Now you are siding with George H. W. Bush?  The Republican?  You . . . you . . . you are Green!

Counselor:  I’m just saying it was good advise, no?


Counselor:  Oh?  So you are a Savonarola?

Don’t start calling me foreign names.
