Dear Professor Scanlon,

Contractualism? More like Con-dork-ualism. Article rejected. Try the journal of philosophy and sports.

There, now you're done and can go out to a movie.

Didn't the meetup committee appoint a secretary to liveblog? Who will read the minutes of the last meetup? Who's in charge of the agenda? The old business gets discussed first, and only after that, the new business? Who's in charge of keeping the dissident facton from taking over the meetup?

I sense impending disaster.

It looks to me that the national executive committee might have to depose the local SF committee and put it under direct central control.

Sifu is ordered to appear personally before the national executive committee, which has been specially convened to deal with certain serious questions that have recently come up. It is not necessary for anyone to accompany him.

Conscientious practice of self-criticism is still another hallmark distinguishing our meetup from all other parties. As we say, dust will accumulate if a room is not cleaned regularly, our faces will get dirty if they are not washed regularly. Our comrades' minds and our blog's work may also collect dust, and also need sweeping and washing. The proverb "Running water is never stale and a door-hinge is never worm-eaten" means that constant motion prevents the inroads of germs and other organisms. To check up regularly on our work and in the process develop a democratic style of meetup, to fear neither criticism nor self-criticism, and to apply such good popular Chinese maxims as "Say all you know and say it without reserve", "Blame not the speaker but be warned by his words" and "Correct mistakes if you have committed them and guard against them if you have not" - this is the only effective way to prevent all kinds of w-lfs-n germs from contaminating the minds of our comrades and the body of our blog.

Opposition and struggle between ideas of different kinds constantly occur within the meetup; this is a reflection within the meetup of contradictions between classes and between the new and the old in society. If there were no contradictions in the meetup and no ideological struggles to resolve them, the meetup's life would corne to an end.

In inner-blog criticism, guard against subjectivism, arbitrariness and the vulgarization of criticism; statements should be based on facts and criticism should stress the political side.

Oh I see, philosophy of games and rule-following is all high status and Kripkensteinian, but philosophy of sport is like the poor relation.

One wonders how these meetups will evolve over time. Now: drunken witticisms in bars or flophouses. +7 years: Unfogged Playdates at Chuck-E-Cheeses. +15 years: Unfogged Downsized Meetups with splinter group of Unfogged Demos Terrorist Petrol Bomb Meetup. +20 years: Unfogged Single Again/Reintegrating into Lawful Society Meetups. +40 years: Unfogged Widows Cruise in Alaska.

Dear Dr. FL,
Sorry this piece sucks and it ruined your Saturday. But while I have you here --- coffee? martinis?

Frightening.

Meanwhile, you will sneer, but the Live Earth coverage on the television is not half bad. What's with Sting being so goddamned cut (if that's the word)? Christ, I must be old that I don't mind this shit.

Anyone who has information about the whereabouts of one "Sifu Tweety" is advised to communicate it to the central committee in order to avoid suspicion of being a collaborator.

The coverage has to be pretty good for you to tell whether Sting is cut or uncut. You must have HDTV.

You all do realize that I have video of Fontana Labs screaming "How many fellatio? Infinite fellatio!" before punching one flak-jacketed Spencer Ackerman square in the chest, right? Other meetups be damned.

Nothing quite so dramatic as punching Spencer Ackerman in the chest took place, at least that I noticed. But the beer, pizza, and Persian food were all good.

And if Emerson threw McQueen a beer, should he just take off his shirt and make his own molotov cocktail, rather than demanding one be handed to him?
