Dan, I've long appreciated your sharp mind and crystalline concepts.
Your skill at reducing an issue to its bare essentials is exemplary.
You highlight the cold calculus by which success or failure is
determined, and by which the rational actor exercises his will upon a
literally uncaring world.  The absence of anthropomorphizing,
wishing-makes-it-true, and muddle-headed mysticism or vague
uncertainty is both refreshing and exhilarating.

Over the top, I admit.  But entirely true--within context.
