onto something.

I need to take post, supportive of Mari's work, as an opportunity to
offer her a public apology for the order in which I put the initials
in the subject line that started this particular thread. The order
raises the question of the sense in which I was giving Jonathan
priority. I did not intend to give him the priority in scholarship
(I'm sure he would be mortified if I did), only in bandwidth on the
list. Since he's been carrying the ball, I addressed him first.

I appreciate the interest with which Mari's work is being viewed by
the scholarly community. I put the <grin> in the subject line to
acknowledge my exaggeration. I look forward to hearing more about the
extent to which her ideas gain acceptance.
