Parmenides knew what was what. Or at least he thought he did. If, in reality, he knew (and commas might be important here) was another question, (and whether Donald Rumsfeld was a follower of Parmenides is a matter of opinion). These were the issues that were swirling through the mind of Rabbi Oud Ramonides as he tried to mediate between the increasingly violent sisters of the Cruxicogentes Convent of Theodora, and the Personal Services’ Workers employed by Madam Cosima next door. Now however the whole community has taken sides, dividing Frab and Felix, Hedre and Tabitha, and even Marx and Spender.
