A critical thinker asks, "How do you account for critical thinking's success?"
Says I, "It consists in successfully missing the point."
"And what, pray, is the point?" asks the critical thinker critically.
"It ain't no use in sittin' 'n' wonderin', babe,
if you don't know by now," (quoting Dylan's Don't Think Twice).
"Well, I'm off to Paris -- invited keynote, you know," chirps CT cheerily.
"It's downright dangerous for success to think twice," I murmur to myself,
"What you need's a sure instinct for its sweet smell."
CT to himself, on the way to the airport, "Clearly a case of sour grapes."
