Q begins with his usual seemingly irrelevant blather.  This time it's about a horoscope appearing in the paper on the very morning he sat down to write a Dialogue which would attempt to do precisely that.

(John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, also placed an emphasis on the heart.  In his mystical conversion experience, he reported, "I felt my heart strangely warmed."  Later, he would talk about his approach to Christian doctrines by quoting Jehu (2 Kings 10:15):  "'Is your heart as true to mine as mine is to yours?'  If so, then give me your hand."  This can be found in a sermon of Wesley's and reading it may repay dividends when considering the contentiousness that roils our society . . . just as it roils the relationship between Snark and Advocatus.  It's called "A Catholic Spirit" by which is meant not Roman Catholicism, but a Universal Spirit.)
