I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.~ Kurt Vonnegut~
from his first novel, Player Piano
I'm not sure I have ever been a centrist in my life. Pick an extreme. That's often where you'll find me.
It's a lot more fun to be on the ends when you play Crack the Whip.
