    "—Where are you going? —I'm going down to a caff, drink a lot of pano [sic], and listen to the band. —You won't make it fast, will you? It doesn't do to make it fast: you have to think of the main objective. —Actually, it doesn't do to be fussy."

    "Eat late and drunk, like a Frenchman." — some twaddle from the NY Daily Press from many years ago, which, unsurprisingly, prompted a rebuttal in the (very, very sad) letters to the editor a week later.

    (I think that's what it was called: tabloid, free joke magazine on newsprint, complete with that cocksucker Matt Taibbi and that moron Jim Knipfel. Meh, it'd be in every stupid Ray's pizza shop and whatever).

    They did have Tony Millionaire's "Drunky Crow" or whatever in it.

    It doesn't a matter: just sourcing the quote or "quote."

    "The local and global consequence relations are different. Consider the formulas p and <box>p. It is easy to see that p does not locally imply <box>p — indeed, that this entailment should not hold is pretty much the essence of locality."

    —Blackburn, de Rjke, Venema, Modal Logic

    *I use <box>p to avoid looking up the unicode character for the box/square operator in modal logics: the <box> is just a square drawn as such, and is the complement of the <diamond> operator, which, as one might think, looks like a diamond. Usually it's just called "box" or "square" in verbal communication, and many times it is interpreted to mean, for example "p is necessary." There's more to say on this topic, and the book I quoted is a very good advanced textbook on the topic I still dip into as a resource and reference, even though I'm not an expert in some of the thornier problems in modal logics, by any means. This concludes the mass. Go in peace.

    "All in all, the global modality is a strikingly natural extension of modal logic — and at first glance this seems surprising. How can something so obviously global blend so well with the locality of modal logic? Basically, because the enriched language still takes an internal perspective on relational structure. Although we now have a global operator at our disposal, we still place formulas inside models and evaluate them at a particular state. To put it another way, the intuition that a modal formula is an automaton scanning accessible states is still remarkably robust."
