It is generally known that the world is secretly run by a secret committee that meets in secret. What is not generally known is that this secretive four-man committee is known as The Committee. It has been in existence for about fifteen years, in which period, you will have observed, the world has improved enormously and become much more secretive. I am a member and we met last night - at a secret location to eat osso bucco, normally it's kleftico. The Committee likes soft meat. I cannot, of course, report on the proceedings - they are secret and we are secretive types - but I can confirm that, at the end of the evening, we concluded, 'It is all going according to plan.' I am in charge of establishing a new basis for metaphysics and I will do just that once this headache clears.
