When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

With apologies to Messrs. Gilbert and Sullivan

Kim Plofker swings for the fences:
I am the very model of a modern Libertarian:
I teem with glowing notions for proposals millenarian,
I've nothing but contempt for ideologies collectivist
(My own ideas of social good tend more toward the Objectivist).
You see, I've just discovered, by my intellectual bravery,
That civic obligations are all tantamount to slavery;
And thus that ancient pastime, viz., complaining of taxation,
Assumes the glorious aspect of a war for liberation!
There's much, much more.
