Right. There is no way to discern which previous comment is being skewered, bent, corrected, deflected or obviated, and chronological order has been discarded as too Aristotelian, I reckon, so I'll just note that some of these comments reflect silliness and plain old not reading the material carefully, and are therefore kinda funny. Some are on point but when out of order, which point they're on is a tricky detail. Still, somebody named John laid down the law when he said, "Atoms of the Slit" because YES, obviously. Gotta go write a short story, kids. Thanks for the article , Marianne. Keep 'em flying! -Spacebeagle
