The British physician in the movie Bridge on the River Kwai surveys the death and destruction in the final scene of the movie. He says, "madness, madness." The movie ends on that note.

After I finished the final draft of my third terrible novel last week, I swore I would not attempt another one anytime soon if ever. I was sitting in the local bar later in the afternoon, and I started making notes for another novel on the postcards stocked in the dispenser by the jukebox.

What is this terrible compulsion I cannot expel from my system?

"Madness, madness!"
