What is this? Mainly a reading diary, mainly intended for me. It's public to give me the illusion that there is a reason for not stopping, and to keep me from being too lazy or too honest. The agenda, so far as there is one, is to quote from sources outside the web and use these as an excuse for commentary. If I appear to have violated your copyright, please tell me and I will erase the offence. If I've offended you for other reasons, it's probably best to ignore me. Everybody else will.
