[Let this kind if excessively enthusiastic response to yesterday's
announcement of the Lyman Award stand for the many I have received.
Thanks to everyone. But this is an award not first to a personality
(however attractive or otherwise :-)) but to a kind of activity -- a
recognition of humanities computing itself, the common ground where
we all meet and, if the truth be told, are able to live a
life-of-the-mind worth living. What a gift! --WM]

<begin tongue-in-cheek sarcasm>

I am completely awestruck! How could they give out such a prize like this?

<end tongue-in-cheek sarcasm>

Actually, the truth is I'm surprised that the award hasn't been given
to Willard
for the past 5 years straight. Congratulations on a prize well-deserved. And
thanks for your past (and continued) dedication to research in Humanities
computing and to this list in general.

May the accolades be met with equal quantities of food, refreshment and envy
from the rest of us! :)
