  How many more times are these words going to be said?

  Louis, we seem to come back and forth to this so-called nonsense
because we have turned the page, again and again. It is blank.

  You say no debates of old, yet you use them for the ink of your pen.

  We have two choices on this list. Debate the existing past/present,
Discuss our actions in the present/future.

  You say it is time to think more creatively. We don't seem to need
to, in discussing the existing past or present, do we? Creativity is
created from need. Only when this becomes a forum where action is the
discussion, will creative new approaches to those actions form.
