"Vaguely nice lady" is Cazaril's idea (and misconception); I would not be
surprised if Ordol was saying more than Cazaril heard or understood at the
time. (It's like T.S. Eliot -- I think it should be a crime to teach _The
Waste Land_ or _The Four Quartets_ to people under the age of thirty,
because there's so much in them that the young just don't or won't or can't
Though Chio has a point about the difference between theologians who know
what they're talking about, versus those who just blather on smoothly,
unaware of the oceanic depths beneath the ice they're skating on.
