heh...great link :). This isn't about elevating anyone to the level of
a god, though. I really don't care if people agree with Derrida or not.
 In a lot of ways, I don't -- I probably should have disagreed with
Scottie's characterization of my posts as "don't knock it 'til you try
it." It'd be more accurate to say, "Knock it for what it is, not for
what you imagine it to be." It's just a matter of having some knowledge
behind your disagreement. Seems like some of that was covered in the
Godwin's Law webpage too :)
