Well, maybe that was the wrong side of the argument to take. Maybe I 
ought to have argued that taking the scalpel of simplification to the 
Triples peal length was wrong because amputating all those crusty old 
exceptions and special cases loses us some of our culture, our identity.

Maybe ringing shouldn't be reduced to the tiniest set of razor-sharp 
mathematical axioms we can find. Maybe it is better off with a bit of 
ancient lore, a bit of depth.
