Shiny fronts get shiny by rubbing away and covering up all that makes 
such a thing actually great or having any chance of greatness.   Real 
successes are build by very real and gritty people dedicated to what 
they are doing.   In point of fact we are lunatics.  But with a bit more 
actual movement we are the good kind of lunatics that you can't 
distinguish from genius except on the basis of what we actually 
accomplish.   Let's worry less about how we look to the world and more 
about molding reality in the image of our ideals.
