Subject: Re: Derrida Live


the URL was mistyped in the original post (the slashes after the colon
were ommitted).  try this:

scroll about halfway down the page to "peak events," where you'll find
the link for derrida:  "World's Most Famous Philosopher Live Online."
i can't help picturing a fish on the hook and out of the water.  the
arch and flail of silvery spine protest the specificity of the elements
and the stunning fact that life continues outside the appointed element,
even if only for a short time, and if only to stage this protest.

in other words, this tabloid-style blurb declares this an amazing event,
but leaves undecided which is more amazing:  that derrida is online, or
that he's alive at all.

(thinking that the truly amazing thing is not just that derrida is
alive, but that fishes are, too)
