+ BARD ON THE BEACH ~~ Tel 739 0559 ~~ www.bardonthebeach.org
- Much Ado About Nothing -- fun with a touch of flamenco in Dean Paul Gibson's production.  John Murphy's timing is so good and funny (reminds me a bit of John Cleese), and Jennifer Lines is suitably adamant against marriage as well.
Antony and Cleopatra is an absolute tour de force!  Gripping.  Jennifer Lines is brilliant (see Maiku), Andrew Wheeler tortured by choices, Simon Bradbury dramatic (after clowning in Ado).  Clean, clear direction by Scott Bellis.
- FALSTAFF (Henry IV, Parts I and II) previews July 1, Opening Night Wed July 7
        Directed by Glynis Leyshon * Dean Paul Gibson as Falstaff
Into an England ripped apart by civil war strides the gigantic figure of Sir John Falstaff, Shakespeare's most endearing and brilliantly comedic rogue. In this exciting new adaptation of Henry IV, Parts I & II by Errol Durbach, we follow Sir John as he leads the young Prince Hal in a series of wild adventures. As Hal's father, Henry IV, fights a deadly battle to retain control of the English throne, the King and Falstaff engage in an unforgettable struggle for the heart and mind of the future Henry V. Friendship or honour, pleasure or duty, loyalty or betrayal - which path will Hal choose?

-  THE WORLD PREMIERE of Moliere'sThe Misanthrope, adaptation by Tony Harrison -- ends June 27 -- http://www.unitedplayers.com/
- Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, directed by Tariq Leslie, July 2 - 24
One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies -- mistaken identity and gender confusion all figure actively in this Twelfth Night, set in the Victorian Era and an llyria that evokes the British Columbia of the 1890s.  It starts with a stormy night and a shipwreck, followed by cunning capers, concealments, and mistaken identities: all resulting in a love tangle to rival no other, and a whole heap of mischief and mayhem in Shakespeare's most captivating comedy. To anyone who has experienced the suddenness of love, Twelfth Night will always resonate.
"Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's finest comedies, and with good reason," says Tariq Leslie, director. "It's a rich delicious jewel, full of love and light, which also pierces with exquisite agony. Twelfth Night explores love in all its touching and absurd extremes; love that is exotic and familiar, and aching with desire."
What You Will Equity Co-op is made up of a group of experienced, well-known, younger actors: Adam Bergquist (Sebastian), Trevor Devall (Orsino), Paul Herbert (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), Yurij Kis (Antonio), Courtney Lancaster (Viola), Tariq Leslie (Malvolio), Michael Smith (Sir Toby Belch), Ashley O'Connell (Fabian), John Prowse (Feste), Bronwen Smith (Maria), and Lori Triolo (Olivia). Tariq Leslie also directs, and original music is composed by Ross Smith, the lead singer for Edmonton Blockheater. The creative team is rounded out by Tamara McCarthy (Assistant Director), Kyla Gardiner (Costumes, Set and Lighting), Nicholas Harrison (Fight Choreography) and Jethelo Cabilete (Stage Manager)

special thanks to [Library Bd] HR cmte; challenging task, many qualified candidates [cmte named]
The Library Board appointed Jenny Benedict to the position of Director of Library Services for WV.  Jenny comes to West Vancouver from the Hartford Connecticut Public Library. She was born in England and has dual citizenship in England and the US. She has a Master's in English Literature and a Master's in Library and Information Science as well as an advanced graduate certificate in Management of Libraries and Information Agencies. In addition to working as a librarian, she has managed a large bookstore, been a primary school teacher, and served as the chair of a symphony orchestra. When asked what attracted her to this position, she highlighted the strong cultural components (music concerts and art gallery) which she saw as part of a broad definition of the concept of literacy in the library's mandate and was impressed by our implementation of RFID and other new technologies. Jenny will begin work at the West Vancouver Memorial Library on August 16th.

10. Municipal Consultation Regarding Metro Vancouver's Draft Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan (File:  0185-20)
THAT Council provide the following municipal comments to Metro Vancouver regarding the Draft Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan:
Further to Council's endorsement of the Zero-Waste Challenge, the 70% diversion target and actions expressed within Goals 1 and 2 are supported;
Considerations of any increases beyond the 70% diversion rate should only be made following the establishment of organics diversion throughout the region, and implementation of mandatory recycling in the Institutional, Commercial, and Industrial Sector and the Demolition, Land-Clearing, and Construction Sector;
Metro Vancouver should strengthen its discussions with the Province to accelerate expansion of the Extended Producer Responsibility Programs to include packaging materials;
The Eco-Centre concept should be further studied and evaluated due to concerns about municipal equity, cost, and ramifications for existing stewardship group business arrangements;
Council supports the concept of extracting energy from waste where financially and environmentally appropriate;
Further study and financial modeling are needed to determine the appropriate ownership and business model governing any new Waste-to-Energy facility; and
Metro Vancouver needs to provide a robust site-specific business case for Waste-to-Energy (WTE) in comparison to other disposal options.
RF: ... similar to DNV and City next, similar
all three NSh Ms in agreement wrt our comments
Phil Bates: at end of lengthy three-year process Metro has gone through
regulatory and binds
Board has given to July 14 for recommendations; these are ours for the Board
prov govt, aboriginal govts, etc, etc, public and staff -- fairly representative consensus of opinion
based on inverted triangle SLIDE
waste as a resource where practical; moving to 70% diversion rate beyond that bump up against X and affordability
1979???? goal of xxx 70% diversion
remaining 30% focused on how to deal with residual
Four goals 17 strategies and 150 actions
pull out organic waste -- 395K tons and target wood waste
Metro building various facilities; eventually bans
targeting demolition and land-clearing; onus on devprs/owners during demolition
2.2M to 2.5M popn still will have 3.9M tonnes; waste-to-energy Bby facility
MetroV is predicting an 11% decrease (in costs)
assume can sell the heat and electricity; do site-specific analysis
We are looking at some add'l costs; looking at cost mitigation
looking at garbage vs organics and recycling; move to diversion -- reduction in tipping fees
reduction if biweekly garbage
ppl take advantage of unlimited yard trimmings, some use and some don't; propose a limit
some money for us, ten, 20 bags
look to generate new fees, same with demolition, land-clearing, construction
5th straight year of declining garbage volumes, some from economics and also from enforcement of rules; won't accept yard trimmings in garbage
almost half is compostable organics, paper so can move those
wd like Metro to take a stronger stand, eg packaging
bottle depots, ..........
staff support energy from waste; re new disposal facilities, do need studies can actually be realized
argument hinges on positive cash flow
Ev: missing an opp if wait to go beyond 70% before mandating, requesting [fees] re demolition, etc, right now? why wait?
RF: that's indeed what we want to say
some in cmnty advocate beyond 70% now
let us get to this point first then revisit the goal
Mayor: I usually see you at xxx
Ben West: come to you from Western Wilderness Cmte; four years as student rep on board at Cap
overall v positive; reflects well on staff
specifically want to speak to concept of extracting where financially
report by KPMG for Vancouver, happy to forward to you
they state clearly cost underestimated and revenue overestimated
we have some of the best EPR laws in the world, look at cost-benefit
Wilderness Cmte worried about mass burn, particularly the incineration of plastics
a letter written to CAWG in 2005 (listed groups like Suzuki, etc)
quote: incineration of waste 50-50 anthropogenic cancer hazard
shd emulate San Francisco, zero waste by 2020
we rely on Hydro but mistake to burning
more and more of waste made up of plastic; also source of toxins
[ML made motion]
Sop: target, can live with that
last four bullets of staff financial costs and biz cases
alarming cost factor; overwhelming Metro has not really satisfied the Lower Mainland, to make presentation to Victoria
lacking completeness, are we really on the right track?
know you, Madam Mayor and Cclr Panz went over to Europe to look at them WtE
more imp, direct tax impact on a local taxpayer
divisions, inference going to save money but...
costs, impact, tremendous; some savings from recycling progs
staff indicate a lot of work to do
send these recommendations and add a caveat, not to Victoria till back for ratification, otherwise send in, accepted, too late
from what I gather from staff report, we're a long way away
not satisfying concrete information
staff right in what they state, it's mish-mash and true costs not presented, and public not fully aware of
Ask, caveat Metro be advised not sent to Victoria till ratified by Ms
Mayor: what we're doing this evening?
RF: will take these comments into consideration, at conclusion of consultation (all Ms) revise the draft plan before presenting to Metro Board; Metro wd sent to Min of Envmt, then if approved, wd come back at that point to Ms for ratification for just the M actions
Mayor: just the M actions wch are distinct from the ones that are the regional responsibilities, is that correct?
RF: correct
Mayor: that might be the distinction you're interested in as well
Sop: too late; our conclusions will have further discussions
left a little dizzy after one presentation by a gentleman
35 years, shdn't sign off and let them do anything
if all the way to Ministry it's a galloping horse and too late
Mayor:  May come back to you in a minute. let's hear from other cclrs
TP: follow that one!
clearly laid out what our actions are; done a tremendous amt, a tremendous to do
support first three; we as M can push prov
need more information before going down that path (EPR?)
clear we need more information as we go through the first three steps
reducing plastics a critical piece
think staff has reported this well and supportive
Mayor: are these sever recommendations the same as in NV
RF: for all intents and purposes
Mayor: will come to Board; can see caution
Sop: but doesn't come back to this Ccl; no problem if you
doesn't come back to our taxpayers -- already in motion, you know how things work in Victoria
the last thing we shd accept -- coming back to us
RF: if it's any consolation, the plan is broad and general direction
getting to 3 and 4, WtE, there are many forms, one is mass incineration
Metro also willing to consider aerobic degeneration ... xxx
far away from siting in a particular nbrhd in a M
as the plan moves on, my personal opinion is that there will be plenty of opps for refinements, MetroV board re budgets re annual expenditures to facilitate so believe due diligence still out there
TP: for clarification, the 70%, when is that target date?
can we get there without WtE if you look at the first three points?
we're doing 55% now?
RF: yes.  The 70% target is 2015; we're looking to 65%
as Mr Bates's graph showed, a lot diversable
curbside organic pickups, achievable
Mayor: been a decade since knew had to move from Ashcroft
briefly: xxx
Sop: taxpayer will have to bear full costs, tremendous dollars needed
highly unlikely other levels kick in; solid biz case for everything we're doing
from board to Victoria and will all be over before we can blink; asking through board or waste mgmt you sit on that you have consideration, chance to express for the local taxpayer, otherwise taxpayer burdened
Mayor: I've probably been the most vocal about a financial plan and the board's heard that
that's only going to heat up, so to speak, on various aspects of MetroV's forecasts
ML: I sit on the MetroV Finance Bd; this has been in front of the FinCmte, it will come back; there are a series of diff options, in terms of what WtE technology cd be employed
preliminary numbers show positive of $35M, benefit of incineration; may be overly optimistic to accept those verbatim however the alternative forms such as biological disposal into 100s of Ms of dollars to the taxpayers
This analysis will be done, will be refined, and it will be discussed
not something we'll be cut out of in any way and results will come back to District Ccl
Mayor: thank you and for your role there

+ 2.   
An application and adjudication process for remaining one time grant funding in the amount of $21,500 from the Grants in Aid budget for 2010 be initiated; and
LS: a bit of a problem, staggered, wasn't done evenly
2010 all had been allocated and had to determine if add'l grants
some money remaining, $6300
falls in Grants in Aid budget -- possibly redirect money to other areas
with this we may have the opp for a call of
$21K in funding; particularly difficult wrt increased need in the cmnty
may be able to receive on a one-time basis
fall look at longer term options; the $21K wd be one-time funding for this year
[TP made motion]
SW: is the $21K within the existing budget or money to be taken out of?  I don't really understand
Mayor: where did it come from
LS: 6300 from existing budget; a couple of other areas that we believe are not needed
substance abuse has existing funds with other Ms, not needed
FC/Youth Justice, $24K for each M, other Ms allocated less , notice recently therefore an add'l $2K
also "Other" and we feel that we don't really need $5K in that account
been under-utilized
take $3200 from this so can go through cmnty grants process
+ 3.   
Longer term budget options for the Community Grants program, including improved staggering of grant funding within the three-year funding cycle, be brought back for Council's consideration in the Fall as part of the Community Grants Committee's 2010 Work Plan.

CR: Congratulations on your win.  Carolanne Reynolds, Editor of West Van Matters
        {wch you are reading! :-)}
A couple of things here
Earlier this year I did ask about the applications for the grants b/c I'd asked some other groups and they hadn't received any notice about it so I was pleased to see the full report today and all the work they've done, so I hope that for the money you have left you will well publicize that you will accept applications, b/c nobody knew about them
{well, nobody of the groups I asked knew about them to be absolutely clear.}
so thank you v much
Next thing, and of course you know me with 'heritage language' -- as well as congratulations on your awards for the cmnty ctr and the LEFF-tenant--
Mayor: yes
CR: --Governor Award

{Alas, we heard the American pronunciation [LOO-tenant] during the references earlier in the mtg but of course in Canada, as in the UK, we say LEFF-tenant.  The Mayor so readily said yes, obvious she noticed and knew -- indeed anyone who'd met a BC Lt-Gov wd know.}

the next thing is, I understand there still is some discussion going on wrt the Public Correspondence, so I'm hoping the list will be there soon,

{Good thing I decided not to hold my breath till they completed the access and put in a logical appropriate place.}

the last thing is there's going to be a Public Information mtg at the Library from 7 to 9pm on Thursday June 24th
The first 3/4 of an hour, we're happy to say the Engg Dept is coming to give a presentation on the infrastructure and utilities, and we're v grateful that they have organized this and we're looking forward to all their information to help us understand this great increase in taxes looming over us,

{UPDATE: and an excellent job they did; Dir/Engg himself made the presentation; posters, slides, Q&A; report in next WVM.}

and after that there will be a panel to have a WV update
so there'll be a break with coffee, then at 8 o'clock there'll be a panel.
Plsd to say Cclr Sop and Cclr Lewis will be on the panel and Cclr Evison is kind enough to attend too, the rest were v busy.  We're sorry we cdn't see you all--
Mayor: --sorry, who's hosting the mtg?
CR: West Van Matters is hosting the mtg
Mayor: at the Library? on Thurs at 7 o'clock?
CR: right; from 8 to 9 is the update with comments
ppl are welcome to come and ask questions about anything so we can get an update on whatever
{oh dear, I forgot to mention possibilities such as waterfront, density/infill, etc. but there were a range of questions anyway}
and Madam Mayor, if you wanted to have someone from staff to come to represent you or whatever to give that perspective, that wd be most welcome to have on the panel b/c I'm sure with so many rumours flying around, it's really great to have a mtg in an informal situation where ppl can ask questions and get the updated information and provide input to you, so tyvm.
Mayor: thank you for the invitation.  As you know, I have a couple of engagements that night, but we're in the hands of Cclr Lewis and Cclr Sop--
CR: --Evison
Mayor: they'll do a find job, ...and Cclr Evison
CR: tyvm; look forward to it.

Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 4360, 2004, Amendment Bylaw No. 4643, 2010 (File:  1610-20-4643)
The Director of Planning, Lands, and Permits will describe the proposed Bylaw amendments.
Applicant: The District of West Vancouver
Subject Lands: The proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw amendments apply to all lands in the municipality of West Vancouver.
Purpose: The proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw amendments will:
incorporate key policy directions of the Community Dialogue on Neighbourhood Character and Housing, which was undertaken in 2007-2008 in accordance with OCP Policy H 1; and establish the policy framework to "allow for the examination of new housing prototypes in Existing Neighbourhoods through a DWV-led housing pilot program."
Proposed OCP Bylaw Amendments: A new subsection titled "The Community Dialogue on Neighbourhood Character and Housing" would be added. This subsection would make current the OCP's 2004 direction to undertake a dialogue on housing, and discuss the key findings of the Community Dialogue.
A new Policy H 4.1 would be added to provide policy for the District's Housing Pilot Program. As envisioned by the Community Dialogue on Neighbourhood Character and Housing Working Group, in its report of September 2008, pilot projects:
"would allow for new housing prototypes consistent with the community's desire for improved housing choice, for housing that is sympathetic to a site's natural features and minimizes site alteration, and for housing designed to fit with established neighbourhood character;
would involve the selection of project(s) by Council following a formal open selection process;
would include a formal evaluation of projects upon completion of construction to understand the effectiveness of a project in meeting community objectives and to inform the development of policies, regulations and processes related to housing and neighbourhood character;
may include projects which require a rezoning, development permit, and/or variance permit, in which case the approval process provided for in the Local Government Act shall apply and no amendment of this OCP shall be required; and
provide opportunities for public involvement including, but not limited to, access to project information, site tours upon completion, and participation in the evaluation process."
1) Reports received up to June 24:
        OCP Amendment for Housing Pilot Program --  May 27, 2010
2) Written submissions received up to June 24: None received to date.
On June 7 Council set the date for the PH and statutory notice was published on June 23 and 24. The MClerk will note written submissions received for the June 28 PH.
If there is no further public input and Council does not request a further staff report, then:
THAT all written and verbal submissions be received and that the Public Hearing be closed.
If Council requests a further staff report, then:
THAT staff report back and that the Public Hearing be adjourned to ____________________.
Members of Council are not permitted to receive further submissions once the PH is closed.
Following conclusion of the Public Hearing the following items will be considered:

CSIS chief backs down on claim of foreign influence on politicians
by JEFF LEE AND JONATHAN FOWLIE -- The Vancouver Sun 24 Jun 2010 pA1
In the face of mounting scorn over suggestions that some politicians in B.C. and elsewhere may be under the influence of foreign governments, Canadian Security Intelligence Service director Richard Fadden hastily backtracked Wednesday. Mere hours...read more...
hm --  do read the whole article, well done and well researched with v interesting comments from other officials, many of whom support Fadden's expressions of concern.  The VSun give far more background and context, glad to say.
This appears to me to be somewhat akin to someone daring to say aloud that there's an 800lb gorilla in the room.  Only the naive and uninformed wd think spying and the theft of technological XXX stopped with the fall of the Soviet Union.  The US has prosecuted some spies since then.  How cd Canadians think we are immune and that we have no technology worth stealing or that our influence wdn't help some causes.

+ (Illegal) Settlers' destroy crops  --  To view the on-line version click here.
CPTnet  --  23 June 2010
HEBRON: Settlers destroy Palestinian crops and slash water pipes in the village of El-Fas
On 16 June 2010, a Palestinian farmer witnessed two settlers, believed to reside in the settlement of Kiryat Arba, walking through his garden.  Upon inspection, the farmer realized that his crops, planted with the assistance of USAID, had been destroyed and water pipes slashed.  According to the farmer, the damage to the crops totaled an estimated 10,000 NIS (about 2600 USD) The damaged crops are the primary food and economic resource for the extended family of thirty adults and thirty children.
The Israeli Army and Israeli Police arrived a half-hour after the farmer call them to take statements.  The family filed an official complaint, but remain skeptical about doing so because they have filed complaints in the past and have never received justice.
The family lives between the settlement of Kiryat Arba and a set of prefabricated housing containers, installed about five years ago, called Havat Gal.
The father of one of the children in the family said that he is often afraid to go to work because settlers in the area have threatened to kidnap his children.  On occasion, he will stay home and miss a day of work for fear of something happening to his family.  He recalled an incident involving the poisoning of his sheep, resulting in severe sickness of his children after they drank the milk from the sheep.  He showed CPTers official doctors' notes confirming the poisoning.

+  Top Ten Myths about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Myth #1 - Jews and Arabs have always been in conflict in the region.
Myth #2 - The United Nations created Israel.
Myth #3 - The Arabs missed an opportunity to have their own state in 1947.
Myth #4 - Israel has a "right to exist".
Myth #5 - The Arab nations threatened Israel with annihilation in 1967 and 1973
Myth #6 - U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 called only for a partial Israeli withdrawal.
Myth #7 - Israeli military action against its neighbors is only taken to defend itself against terrorism.
Myth #8 - God gave the land to the Jews, so the Arabs are the occupiers.
Myth #9 - Palestinians reject the two-state solution because they want to destroy Israel.
Myth #10 - The U.S. is an honest broker and has sought to bring about peace in the Middle East.
The background regarding the myths is worth reading to get a more complete picture and context.  For example, the UN's map was two states 55% for Israel and 45% for Palestinian State (and both have a right to exist).  Oh, the devil's in the definitions.  And of course Arafat recognized Israel in 1988 if not earlier.  Barriers so far insurmountable are the borders and a theocratic state.

Forget oil and deal with the real threat: ' green' fuels by JONAH GOLDBERG
A rolling " dead zone" off the Gulf of Mexico is killing sea life and destroying livelihoods. Recent estimates put the blob at nearly the size of New Jersey. Alas, I'm not talking about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. As terrible as that catastrophe...read more...
PHOTO: An oil-covered pelican flies over oil containment booms along the shore line of Queen Bess Island Pelican Rookery, near Grand Isle, La. Such spills occur only every 20 years, while the damage caused by so-called green fuels mounts daily.
Alas, I'm not talking about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. As terrible as that catastrophe is, such accidents have occurred in U. S. waters only about once every 40 years (and globally about once every 20 years). I'm talking about the dead zone largely caused by fertilizer run-off from American farms along the Mississippi and Atchafalaya river basins. Such pollutants cause huge algae plumes that result in oxygen starvation in the Gulf's richest waters, near the Delta...

===  GOVTWATCH  === Circumlocution Office / Science of Govt 
from Dickens's Little Dorrit
CHAPTER 10  --  Containing the whole Science of Government
   The Circumlocution Office was (as everybody knows without being told) the most important Department under Government. No public business of any kind could possibly be done at any time without the acquiescence of the Circumlocution Office. Its finger was in the largest public pie, and in the smallest public tart. It was equally impossible to do the plainest right and to undo the plainest wrong without the express authority of the Circumlocution Office. If another Gunpowder Plot had been discovered half an hour before the lighting of the match, nobody would have been justified in saving the parliament until there had been half a score of boards, half a bushel of minutes, several sacks of official memoranda, and a family-vault full of ungrammatical correspondence, on the part of the Circumlocution Office.
   This glorious establishment had been early in the field, when the one sublime principle involving the difficult art of governing a country, was first distinctly revealed to statesmen. It had been foremost to study that bright revelation and to carry its shining influence through the whole of the official proceedings. Whatever was required to be done, the Circumlocution Office was beforehand with all the public departments in the art of perceiving -- HOW NOT TO DO IT.
   Through this delicate perception, through the tact with which it invariably seized it, and through the genius with which it always acted on it, the Circumlocution Office had risen to overtop all the public departments; and the public condition had risen to be -- what it was.
   It is true that How not to do it was the great study and object of all public departments and professional politicians all round the Circumlocution Office. It is true that every new premier and every new government, coming in because they had upheld a certain thing as necessary to be done, were no sooner come in than they applied their utmost faculties to discovering How not to do it. It is true that from the moment when a general election was over, every returned man who had been raving on hustings because it hadn't been done, and who had been asking the friends of the honourable gentleman in the opposite interest on pain of impeachment to tell him why it hadn't been done, and who had been asserting that it must be done, and who had been pledging himself that it should be done, began to devise, How it was not to be done. It is true that the debates of both Houses of Parliament the whole session through, uniformly tended to the protracted deliberation, How not to do it.
   It is true that the royal speech at the opening of such session virtually said, My lords and gentlemen, you have a considerable stroke of work to do, and you will please to retire to your respective chambers, and discuss, How not to do it. It is true that the royal speech, at the close of such session, virtually said, My lords and gentlemen, you have through several laborious months been considering with great loyalty and patriotism, How not to do it, and you have found out; and with the blessing of Providence upon the harvest (natural, not political), I now dismiss you. All this  is true, but the Circumlocution Office went beyond it.
   Because the Circumlocution Office went on mechanically, every day, keeping this wonderful, all-sufficient wheel of statesmanship, How not to do it, in motion. Because the Circumlocution Office was down upon any ill-advised public servant who was going to do it, or who appeared to be by any surprising accident in remote danger of doing it, with a minute, and a memorandum, and a letter of instructions that extinguished him. It was this spirit of national efficiency in the Circumlocution Office that had gradually led to its having something to do with everything. Mechanicians, natural philosophers, soldiers, sailors, petitioners, memorialists, people with grievances, people who wanted to prevent grievances, people who wanted to redress grievances, jobbing people, jobbed people, people who couldn't get rewarded for merit, and people who couldn't get punished for demerit, were all indiscriminately tucked up under the foolscap paper of the Circumlocution Office.
   Numbers of people were lost in the Circumlocution Office. Unfortunates with wrongs, or with projects for the general welfare (and they had better have had wrongs at first, than have taken that bitter English recipe for certainly getting them), who in slow lapse of time and agony had passed safely through other public departments; who, according to rule, had been bullied in this, over-reached by that, and evaded by the other; got referred at last to the Circumlocution Office, and never reappeared in the light of day. Boards sat upon them, secretaries minuted upon them, commissioners gabbled about them, clerks registered, entered, checked, and ticked them off, and they melted away. In short, all the business of the country went through the Circumlocution Office, except the business that never came out of it; and its name was Legion. {For the rest of the chapter: http://www.readprint.com/chapter-2800/Little-Dorrit-Charles-Dickens }
Books About Being Wrong by KATHRYN SCHULZ and DAVID H. FREEDMAN, reviewed by DWIGHT GARNER
"Wrong" by David H. Freedman, expresses anger at so-called experts' mistakes, while "Being Wrong" by Kathryn Schulz, tries understanding.   -->  Excerpts: 'Wrong' | 'Being Wrong'
Here's what they are instead: investigations into why, as Ms. Schulz writes, with a Cole Porterish lilt in her voice, "As bats are batty and slugs are sluggish, our own species is synonymous with screwing up."  ...
This is not a bulletin from the scientific or epistemological frontier. Thinkers have toyed with theories of error since Plato's time, many of them generally agreeing with Albert Einstein, who said, "If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research, would it?" ...
The idea that error can be eradicated, she writes, can lead to frightening and reactionary impulses. (Gulags, purges.) She charts the three stages of our disbelief at other people's ideas when they differ from our own. (We first assume that they are ignorant, then idiotic, finally evil.) She observes how much we adore being right, and how we blithely assume that we nearly always are. Then she pulls the rug out, noting that being wrong, because we're blithely unaware of it, "feels like being right."
from the first chapter:
Of all the things we are wrong about, this idea of error might well top the list. It is our meta-mistake: we are wrong about what it means to be wrong. Far from being a sign of intellectual inferiority, the capacity to err is crucial to human cognition. Far from being a moral flaw, it is inextricable from some of our most humane and honorable qualities: empathy, optimism, imagination, conviction, and courage. And far from being a mark of indifference or intolerance, wrongness is a vital part of how we learn and change. Thanks to error, we can revise our understanding of ourselves and amend our ideas about the world.

It infuriates me to be wrong when I know I'm right.    -- Moli=E8re, French playwright (1622 - 1673)
Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them? -- Abraham Lincoln, US President (1809 - 1865)
