a) Yes, Milton does get tiresome sometimes. But more importantly, he was
informed, creative, and intelligent. Do you seriously mean to make the
comparison implied here?
b) Yes, I agree that Milton properly handled issues related to anonymity.
I'll be recommending that the Star Chamber go after the currently offending
party's publisher instead. Imprisonment at least, with a hefty fine too.
c) I'll try to follow your good example, but only after adding --
d) How many of us have spent much time with actors? I recall a new faculty
member in the theater department at a previous institution of mine tended to
be very dramatic too, especially in faculty meetings. He would even Stand
Up and Enunciate while Pontificating during faculty meetings. E v e r y t h
i n g was a serious matter of principle. He settled down after a couple of
years, but you can imagine the impression he made at the time. Well,
actually, you don't have to imagine it.
