In the City, not many things work better than placebos.
When a Revolutionist hears someone say that the “greatest influence” on their life was “Dr. So & So,” or “Professor X,” he can barely perceive of such a situation.
Even if you’ve never noticed it with your ears, in the City everyone talks-at-once.
You may care to note this of certain City situations:
Some “know it all’s” do “know it all,” (that is, they know all that NEEDS to be known by a “know it all”).
I once heard a City ditty entitled, “You Ought To Live So God Can Use You,” and I thought how sweet it was for the religious types to express such an idea. But later that night I awoke, and broke out in a lukewarm sweat, as I suddenly tried to picture the alternative.
