If you missed last week's episode you may want to listen to it so that Part "Two" will just add to your "pleasure"? WRONG!  More like "anger".
I couldn't pass up referencing our number  "Two" to the Chinese number, ?.
"The number 2 (? or ?, Pinyin:èr or liang) is most often considered a good number in Chinese culture. There is a Chinese saying: "good things come in pairs". It is common to repeat characters in product brand names, such as double happiness, which even has its own character ?, a combination of two ?. In Cantonese, two (jyutping: ji6 or loeng5) is homophone of the characters for "easy" (?) and "bright" (?). In Northern China, the number, when used as an adjective, can also mean "stupid".[1]" Wikipedia
Inventory and Control, Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development, Chinese and Communism, Growth Policy and Vision Planning, Delphi Manufacturing and Kabuki Theater, Consensus and Facilitated Manipulation, Collaboration and Coordination...all pairs of two, lucky for the New Communitarian, unlucky for the individual sovereign.
