This is an experiment we are trying in an attempt to generate topical lead discussion items that are less labor intensive for their authors than the usual Salons. We hope to be able to use them during the periods when no full Salons are available for discussion, and intend to archive them when they are completed.
This one is based on an essay already on line at the Hajji Baba Club website.
Note: The essay is no longer on-line, and is unavailable. The Discussion threads that were based on it are still accessible through this link.
