Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
"Some years ago, I came across a Thomas Carlyle quote that could serve as the solipsist's definitive credo: "Let me have my own way in exactly everything and a sunnier and pleasanter creature does not exist.""
Christopher Buckley, writing WASPily about his father Wm., in the NYT.
As the subject of solipsism was recently resurrected (even though it has been grossly overplayed on this thread)I thought I might mention it.
