Thanks for the kind words. I would add two items
to your list:

        (5) I have only responded to what I perceive
                as false statements made by the
                Enemies of the Library (as described
                by Crawford and Gorman in FUTURE LIBRARIES)
                and university profit goals (described by
                Veblen in THE HIGHER LEARNING IN AMERICA).

        (6) I have plenty of invitations to write,
                but preaching to the choir is not
                as interesting as facing the dragon
                in his lair with all my weapons --
                my personal library -- at my disposal.

Best wishes,

Albert Henderson

So I ask myself: With what justification do I invoke cloture on Albert
and not on myself?

The murmured justification is that I am on the side of the Angels on
this one.

But who doesn't think he's on the side of the Angels...?
