The experiment has lasted long enough and the trial patterns of thinking are now at an end. Your correspondent is preparing his final report, and it's not a pretty one. Positive and saintly attitudes achieve absolutely nothing, they serve only to encourage winter months to show off and behave disgracefully.
I know it's a big sadness for all of us, a great disappointment, especially
after early signs that suggested a favorable response. I remember the 50 degrees
of Fahrenheit, the little bit of sun that teased the Snowdrops and the Small
Crown Narcissus And too we all put great effort into the experiment. But I
regret to say February is now in detention and your committee chairman is encouraging
people to throw rotten eggs at it.
