Subbing Zen and Pairing Socks

Gnomon - time to move on

Hi Vestboy.

I've been given your "Zen and the Art of of Keeping Socks Paired" to sub-edit, which I'm doing at A87784573.

The entry is good, and I've only added links and made a few changes to the spelling etc. It has been suggested, though, that it needs a bit more Zen - you've only one reference to Zen in it. So I've made three changes to increase the Zen:

- I've added two paraphrases of Zen koans - one at the start and one in the section "What Can You Do?".

- I've paraphrased the Zen phrase "The Gateless Gate", using it in the header:

The Sockless Sock - Sock Pair Scramble

Are you happy with these changes, or do you think they detract from the Entry?

If you're happy with them, I can return the entry to the Editors. If not, let me know, I'll remove them and we can discuss some other way of increasing the Zen references.
