    NC Policy Watch is fielding one helluva team these days. You might want to throw some money at them, too.

    one from which we'll be hearing a lot more in years to come:

    I think creative expression is a natural byproduct of growing up in a diverse world. The more diverse the world is, the more you get exposed to different people, to different opportunities, to different places and to different challenges. And the more diverse that is, the more likely you’ll be to be able to put the dots together to form something new. And in many ways, I think if you want to be creative, you have to go for it. If you want to be a writer, you have to write, if you want to be a musician, you have to create music, if you want to be a comedian, you have to create comedy, and the more you create, the more likely it is that you’ll stumble onto some interesting stuff.

    That was written by an artificial intelligence, based on what it had read about and by a popular psychologist. We've gone (far) beyond the AIs that could spit out sports scores and statistics, and couch them in conversational terms. This thing can study the behavior of somebody (or a group of somebodies) and mimic them, respond to interrogatories, and come to conclusions. :/

    when you said:

    Insanity is the new sanity. But with more FREEDOM.

    That last word should be spelled "FREEDUMB".
