Get Some, Marine

I have made it past p. 610 in the Vollmann, will likely finish this epic Thursday.

Ed's comment about discipline and the USMC is unnerving, not that I resent it, not at all, but its this idea of commitment that is ultimately desctuctive, not as its function to others as such, but as a series of intrinsic principles -- this is what plagues me.

There is time for talk about Nietzsche and Pynchon; it will likely be Catch-22 in Chicago: not the situation but the novel

Hopefully I did not piss you off with my comments on the Marine Corp. We have plenty of ex-jarheads at my vocation and they all have this same mindset of Corp,Corp,Corp.

Once again, peace always.
