I'm of the mind that everyone should be thinking about Schopey.  All the
time.  Every waking minute.  Well, no.  But he's worth a read, I think.
He's hilarious.  Very eloquent, depending what you're reading.  Sometimes,
granted, he's dull as rocks, but on the whole I find him very entertaining.
I love his cynicism.  I find him cynical, not pessimistic.  At any rate,
yep, I think you should give Schopey a chance.
