Stepping Out As Well [The Therapist]

This is a bittersweet thing. I'm leaving as well, but not without one retraction and one observation.

Alert reader, Mantis, alerted me to the fact that he was alert enough to realize that I was not alert enough to assume an attribution to Sun Tzu was in his book, The Art of War. It appears that Mantis was so alert that, he alerted me to the fact that it wasn't. I do have the book, but I have not read it in some time, and so I apologize for the amalgamation of urban assumptions and legitimate text to enter the fray. I was not alert.

Mantis then went on to call Ace an idiot for the observations I attatched to the quote, not realizing that the by-line to that column, reading "The Therapist" sits there to the right, looking bigger than Boris Yeltsin's liver. He was not alert.

So the alert thing is somewhat suspect. Either way, thanks for straightening me out about the Sun Tzu bit, Mantis. I mean it. And I love you.

I hope I've contributed something of value here, and I am thankful to Ace for the opportunity to depart from my usual trajectory, which apparrently includes dubious attributions stapled to observations I happen to think are, at the very least, interesting.

Feel free to visit my blog any time . . ., and you too, Mantis.
