Subject: Personal notes

1. The tip about AOL publishing came to me from Dave Pascal, who, with 
Trevina Lawrence, does the bulk of the work on our web site.

2. My dumb pun about the "Holy quale" was based on my not knowing the correct 
pronunciation of "quale," which Damien Broderick tells me is "kwahlay," and 
which my dictionary, tardily consulted, says is "kwaylee." (I did have a 
little Latin in high school, too.)

3. I have read part of Mike Perry's book, first draft; then my computer broke 
down and I have bought a new one, which doesn't have the book in storage. 
Mike has offered to send his current draft by email, and I request that.

What I read of the first draft is a very good survey of the ideas and 
information underlying his thesis, FOREVER FOR ALL. Since he isn't dogmatic, 
I don't have much head-on disagreement, although in some areas I certainly 
would have different emphases and leanings. The spirit is upbeat and 
uplifting, and I hope it finds a market.
