Arlan Purdy resides in the USA Northeast. He likes to make smart remarks and to make computers do all the work. He will pontificate on any subject without warning or warrant.

The title of this blog was inspired from The Structural Study of Myth, by Claude Levi-Strauss, irrespective of the larger context of the quote:

Whatever the situation, a clever dialectic will always find a way to pretend that meaning has been found.
