| Committees work different.

  I think you meant to say that you know for certain that all committees
  are _exactly_ alike, because you have been to at least one meeting of at
  least one committee.  You should make clear to those of us who have been
  members of many committees and have not seen this incredibly simple truth
  or indeed discovered your Grand Unifying Theory of Committees, that we
  are mistaken and have been deluded.  There is actually only one committee
  in the whole world, and it is run by telepathic extraterrestial aliens
  who want to remove individual freedom, and they were also behind the 9/11
  attack and now George W. Bush is turning the U.S.A. into a dictatorship
  where Chinese legal practices against "national security" is becoming
  increasingly popular with that Ashcroft figure.  The Committee was also
  behind the Common Lisp standard.  Dylan somehow escaped the death grip of
  The Committee and is the last bastion of individual freedom on earth, our
  last hope against alien take-over.  Therefore, the only remaining hope
  for mankind is that Dylan take over the world.

  "Committees work different."  Really.  Dude, are you fucking _nuts_?

  Dylan, being a rebellious child of Lisp, is attacking the parens.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
