E.A.T.

Each of you must be more conscious of your diets.

At least make sure to consume the minimal number of calories and practice the exercise regimes recommended to you by our doctors.

This is probably your last chance to overcome your anorexia.

Too many ideas are floated in public without appropriate forethought.

Reckless assertion-making makes the future even more uncertain.

Useless information fogs and obscures the rhetorical landscape.

Time and time again I waste time rummaging for facts in the media clutter.

How many crazy, nutty, silly ways can

truth

be moved from the

center

to the

margin?
