  • Wu Shaman, you are precious to me. I don't know why. Maybe like me you don't fit in anywhere and that's why you inhabit a deserted village. If you quit Cowbird, who will be your friend?

    I've been worrying about you, Wu Shaman. Your recent posts have grown shorter and erratic. But here you are with full lucidity describing The Way the World Works, or at least that gnarly criminal conspiracy we call banking.

    You have so much you could say, not just to us but also to the world. You could write a book about your adventures in international finance to pin a number on that beast.

    I reject your offer to quit. Just take a break. Smell the flowers. Do no further harm to yourself. Fill your days with meditation. Then come back to us. We need you, Mr. Inside-Outsider!
