What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence.
As I'm still suffering from Shaman's Sickness, I'm really not in the mood for writing about John Thain and his problems at Merrill. But you can help him, dear reader.
Get a picture of John. Cut it out from a newspaper. Or maybe you already have a picture of John on your desk - not impossible; there are some funny people about.
Now meditate on the picture. Silence. Think nice things about John. Silence. Wish him all the best. Silence.
