 CR,

 Eliot's pain must certainly be accounted a major portion of the irritant 
that produced the pearl. In his case, a most fabulous string of pearls. But 
much of the attendance to Eliot seems to take the form of turning the 
pearls back into the sludge whence they came, and to pound the person Eliot 
down to "nothing special." The effort is quite transparent (it reminds me 
of the story of the little engine that could, except here the little engine 
wouldn't) if one can resist the hypnotic state its oft repeated formulas 
tend toward. Ultimately, its flaws assure that it will pass with other 
passing fashions. For now, of course, it does take up a lot of bandwidth.
