[Leaving room for a discussion I can’t contribute to, since I know too little of the reality behind and around it: why American fundamentalism is divided in incompatible sects, like the 60s and 70s European Marxism – which I know even less about.]

(Strange things happen around me. While I wrote the above, our black cat decided he couldn’t wait any longer for a fresh-smelling litter tray, so he sneaked into the wardrobe for his private business. Again!!! My sailing-shoes were the place of choice this time, but most of the mess missed them by an inch, thankfully.)
