I haven't finished Illuminatus or Schroedinger's Cat (I have little
patience for fiction in general--I can stay awake through Heinlein,
Stephenson, and Doug Adams but that's about it). I have, however,
read many of RAW's shorter essays, including "Inquisition", and I
have to call it the most worthless piece of tripe masquerading as
serious commentary I have ever read. If it aims at satire, it
misses. That essay takes itself completely seriously, offers no
original ideas, no scholarship, and not even interesting prose.
