But it CAN'T be nonsense.  If it is my entire existence will be for
naught.  I have spent a better part of 34 years cultivating a
consciousness based on massive doses of American media.  If this turns
out to be just fiddle-foddle then can I trust my world view based on old
reruns of Gilligans Island (a very good source of understanding of island
biogeography, in my view), the Munsters (the basis of my knowledge of
genetic mutations and alchemy), and the Brady Bunch (that show hasn't
helped much in dealing with the "real" world but I dig their groovy
threads)?  That phrase must mean something.  Walt Disney would never have
put it in his movie otherwise.  What's next?  Will I learn that Homer
Simpson isn't a model father and husband?!  Please say it aint so.
