in thread "Practices and Principles" to death

I know what you mean, but they don't. It's part of that old wall you hit when you get out of school and are employed in the real world, and realize that everything is a comprimise, and that human life is valued very cheaply. Wanna talk about the poor smuck who has to change the toner cartridge in the laser printer? His/her life has been devalued by corporations in the interest of cheap printing for everyone...... it starts to get me thinking of Jesus and being selected to "hang on the cross" for everyone else's party. I'm gonna write a novel about it. :-)

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum

    I used to work at a publishing services company. I personally may have printed thousands of pages. Behind and above my monitor was a partition with a large black spot on it the size of a car tire. At first I thought that it had been subjected to heat, that the spot was charred. I found out later that there had been a printer there, puffing out invisible clouds of (carcinogenic) toner at the wall.
