What ho, professional conference!

A Russian anecdote I recently heard from a keynote speaker:
It's better to marry a public servant than an oligarch. The perks are the same, but job security is much better.
This is what I've been trying to say. Then I won't have to worry about supporting anyone on my cray schemes. Madame de Pompadour and I have agreed it would be a worthwhile venture. Let the politician hunting begin!

I read this today and thought of yourself, and this blog inparticular.

I'm wondering if you're saying that I'm recidivist or if my writing style is arcane and ridiculous as if it were the Latin of Fermat's Last Theorem (thank you, wiki, for that assist).
