  2. Hi, Bill,

    While suffering from a prolonged bout of rage over the foolishness of those who would rather have their children die from perfectly preventable childhood diseases rather than be subject to the faintest of possibilities that they might, perchance, be autistic, I discovered your blog post. I like it so much that I think I’m going to quote it, and have to ask your permission. I’m thrilled to have discovered your blog. Many thanks in advance (note that I’m thumpingly cheerful about the prospect of receiving said permission), especially for the link that allows me to determine if/when my cats will kill me. Oh, yes, and Anathem.

    Sincerely, tpc

  3. Er … there’s a reason for proofreading. Two rathers in a row. I grovel in the gravel. I also plead massive drug intake and interference. Of the prescription variety, of course.
