Das Capital

A short word, if I may. Most of the time I write and design for the pleasure of it. The Amazing Missus sees boxes of textbooks, and thought, and posters, and coffee mugs not as the residue of my joy but another task crying out for completion. So sell it I must. You now can worm your way into a greater degree of affection with the Oracle (and certainly his wife) by going to the place we store our Loot and buying stuff like there were no tomorrow. I have added a link to this Mall of Oracular Stuff (bringing my approved sites up to 4) in the sidebar. The site takes PayPal, which, I assume, means I can gain American dollars from you at a distance.

Check back at that site with regularity as I hope to get more stuff produced. I hope that things like The Pitney Canon or a novel, The Book of Knights and Days might reach self publication status ere long. Maybe some bookmarks. Big Haus aprons. Feel free to clamor in the comments section for something I may have forgotten. My great futilitarian work on the sum of all human desire is a ways off (working title "Benediction: a good word on the way it is") so no clamoring for that. You may note in the comments that you await it with patience.

Definitely Pitney! I lost my copy somewhere along the road of life and would love to have it around.

Hi Evan,

I was reading an older post and clicked on a link to a Big Haus application (out of curiosity). The phrase "highest spiritual good mankind can attain" seemed cryptic.

I suspect that "worm food" or "daisy pusher-upper" is not what you had in mind.

Too far off topic?

Phil,
Always good when you drop by. You are right regarding "what I had in mind" but I would not be the one filling out the application. I really want to know what an individual thinks is the "highest spiritual good" even if he/she thinks it "worm food". I also wanted to word it in a more obtuse fashion so that I did not get the "good Christian kid" answer.
