Bruce – very good to hear from you. Did I ever mention that I had ordered a copy of your thesis many, many moons ago? It cost what was for me a not insignificant sum (it wasn’t much, but I was saddled with quite a bit of debt from university), but well worth it. I was very intrigued, as it was something you had mentioned, and I had the greatest respect for you as a professor in undergrad. I should admit that while I did read through it, that was many, many years ago. I think I still have it – came as an unbound photocopy, in a plain cardboard box.
Longer term and situational effects of trying to contribute to knowledge; never ceasing to amaze.
