"Life should be about irony. I do not claim to be above irony. Indeed, I only employ it with a singularly savage relish. Mine is an irony born of love and respect, allusive rather than illusive, and its keen (I hope) edge is derived from wanting things, believing that those things can be achieved and that the struggle is worthwhile. It alludes to make a point, and overwhelmingly to things that I might care about in a twisted way, but nevertheless care about, often with a passion." anon.
