    Dear Colleagues:
    Arun-Kumar Tripathi as usual brings interesting contributions.  It occurs to
    me that if a "history" computer were programmed to avoid repeating
    historical errors and ignore long historical sagas not directly relevant to
    historical errors, it would almost immediately exceed the abilities of many
    history professors and teachers.
    Yours historically,
