Journal Journal: Term Limits?

Several states have imposed term limits in recent years. Most who argue for term limits do so because they think that elections distract our officials from their primary duties. Although the goal seems good, in practice term limits may reduce accoutability. Herrick et. al (1994) have found that the empirical story is mixed. While overall activity was decreased among those who did not run for reelection in the House, the quality of the activity increased.

Perhaps a similar system should be imposed on Slashdot moderators.

For Professor Leo Daugherty:

Near the end chapter 10 of _Ulysses_ (I don't have my H.W. Gabler edition handy
or I would give the line numbers), Haines offers a half-hearted apology to
half-hearted Mulligan for missing Stephen's discussion of _Hamlet_ (he was in
Gill's buying a copy of Hyde's _Lovesongs of Connacht_). It goes like this: ...O, but you missed Dedalus on Hamlet

Haines opened his newbought book.

-- I'm sorry, he said. Shakespeare is the happy huntingground of all
minds that have lost their balance.

The onelegged sailor growled at the area of 14 Nelson street:

-- England expects...

Buck Mulligan's primrose waistcoat shook gaily to his laughter.

-- You should see him, he said, when his body loses its balance.
Wandering Aengus I call him.

-- I am sure he has an idee fixe, Haines said, pinching his chin
thoughtfully with thumb and forefinger. Now I am speculating what it
would be likely to be. Such persons always have.

I hope you find this information helpful. Actually, in Stephen's discussion of
_Hamlet_ in the previous chapter there are several references to the sonnets
which you may find interesting, if not directly relevant to your query.

Journal Journal: The story of Mu (cont)

Monk requested from of Joshu. "smooth a dog to have of Buddha-Natur? This question took place on the basis of an intellect and the sector belongs thus to him a idealistic opinion. Joshu answered, had taken place with "Driven", this answer on the materialistic basis of a fact that a dog is an accumulation of the cells of body and this does not give thus of Buddha-Natur. Did that monk require, "with natures living all, but why a dog have Buddha-nature do not have of Buddha-Natur? The question is much truer than become ahead, consequently the question about a concrete situation of the dog is examined. Consequently the question of a realistic illustration belongs. Joshu answers, "of Becuse a dog has with its conscience which was accumulated by its control in the past. Desribes of this answer a realistic state of a dog that a fact of material and interpretation intellectual exceeds.
