Selected Readings, No. 77

February-March, 2000

"In this Work, when it shall be found that much is omitted, let it not be forgotten that much likewise is performed." -- Samuel Johnson

  Greetings! Selected Readings is compiled and edited by Kevin Berland, with the able assistance of the Volunteer Fire Brigade, viz., Erin Blake, Jack Lynch, Dorothy Medlin, Benoît Melançon, and A.J. Wright -- and of course the Man in the Funny Hat, the Deputy Simulacrum, the Operator of the Moderately Elegant Machines, and the Secret Admirer. General all-purpose thanks and a tip of the Hat to the Chair of the Irony Board.

  We'd like to acknowledge the long-term contributions of Dot Medlin; this will be the last issue of Selected Readings in which she will ride along on the volunteers' fire truck. Thanks, Dot. Enjoy your retirement!

  What kinds of things make it into the bibliography? Good question! Please see the explanations and caveats on the Selected Readings Modus Operandi Page

  Websites are indicated by the blue whirly thing -- -- at the beginning of the entry.
