Since he's done his darndest to make a display of bravely running away, thus derailing a comment thread or two, I think I'll relocate them here, below the fold, but still in a main post, rather than let them waste away from memory in comments. Here they can be more easily referenced.
The comments are wide open in this, with only hacking forbidden. In other words, WILD THREAD!
Here's the list, by thread, including retorts from me and allied bloggers.
Originally from Doggerel #111: "Something More"
Originally from Doggerel #117: "Life"
Anyway, expect more to be relocated here.
