Jose, it's true I'm kind of "nat": but so is Mr. Lause, and what we are
"disambiguating" here in our peculiarly anesthetized way is a loss of
"suppleness" in American public discourse during the Bush regime
such as does not benefit relatively rigid characters such as ours.
In other words, what is appealing about this email you have sent is
its "flexible" character: the guy is, well, the guy and all kinds of people
could tend towards this special new norm for reasons known and
unknown.  In other words, a "specific difference" of *Anglais contintental*
we are almost cheated out of on the "Pacific Rim" is its "externalism":
it's not what you meant, it's what you said.
