Some would say a lack of values is a "reel" problem 
in today's world. 

Names are always political.  Note that Bush 
and Blair met in "Belfast, Ireland" according 
to CNN.  Go figure.

"Nodes is Nodes.  Properties is Properties.  Tell 
me who gets to name the Names so we can get on 
with business."

Heard on an Irish Radio station today.

An Indian percussionist was giving a musical masterclass in Dublin's National
Concert Hall. One of the attendees suggested that the percussion music 
would be easier to explain if it were written down in musical notation.

The percussionist responded that he considered it more usful to give his 
notes names, not values.

I'm still reeling from the possible interpretations of that one.
