Gee thanks Peter.

You must have been one of those professors that actually taught because you display the characteristic indifference (some even say enjoyment) to your student's sufferings . . . I even mentioned my plight to my students this morning as I gave them their assignments for the week.

And here I was just patting myself on the back about the Takaoka piece. (It wasn't so bad since it was in an electronic format! )

At least you aren't asking me to write in Japanese. (Passive comprehension is such a beautiful thing.) Then you'd really have an idea of my level of "expertise in the Japanese language!"

(At least I know what I'm writing about! )

Grumble, mumble,

(Native comprehension is such an over rated thing. Whatever happened to proud presumptuousness as exemplified by Comparative Religion during the glory days of colonization?)
