Your editor will be away from his usual haunts from Friday afternoon until
Monday evening, and although computers and the Internet will doubtless be
within reach, he is unlikely to have the time to use them on Humanist. Your
messages will of course be safe on the Princeton server, but it will not be
speaking to you until sometime on Tuesday.

Humanists have always been great talkers. The occasional meditative silence
-- does it make the chatter more welcome?

Meanwhile, for your entertainment I have put on the Web something that I
found among my papers while I was sorting the transatlantic-worthy from the
unworthy last night. It is an essay on how to survive contrary arguments
("factifuging", or fact-fleeing), for which I have the name of the author
but no other information. If anyone recognizes the piece, I'd be grateful to
know more. Enjoy Nathan S. Kline, M.D., "Factifuging", at the URL
