What are we about?
Sometimes after a few drinks or one too many cups of coffee, we get to yelling about things. We say insightful stuff to each other. We make grand, unsupportable statements. We make lucid arguments. Then, in the morning, we can’t really remember what happened, except that proclamations were made, denouncements were thrown about, and we all got pretty riled up. This makes us sad. So we decided to try writing it down.
