Oh, God, I can see it now, like some sort of awful horrible dream, the nightmares, the shivering in the night, just me and Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason" and my 40 page section to present to our 6 person Philosophy Major Systems Class.Oh, the dreadful fighting to stay awake as I waded through German translated to English in both an A and a B version, lilting poetic, phrases, with sections that still come back to haunt me at night like "..the physis of the synthesis of the apperception of the manifold of synthetic apperception." I could be wrong, its been so long.Oh, to see such loverly clear pdf files. With such clear and beauteous translations of the master. I am not worthy. O tempore! O Mores! Would that I had had access to such a thing back in the dim ages, when dinosaurs walked and correct-o-type preceeded white-out, preceded the delete key. I cannot wait till they get to the Critique. I may be able to read it in all one go. I just kept falling asleep. Never a problem with Barkley, Locke or Hume. Certainly not with Buber who was so clear it was a joy to read.Sorry for the comment which I now realize is longer than your post. And thanks for the thanks. Which generated more peeks at my page than vice versa I'm afraid.So thanks for that!Peter in Chicago.

Whenever you give the government the power to do something for you, you also give it the power to do something to you.
