Nice!  I thought this should maybe be noted in the datatyping debate:

34. The string is a stark data structure and everywhere it is passed there 
is much duplication of process. It is a perfect vehicle for hiding information.

47. As Will Rogers would have said, "There is no such thing as a free 
variable."

50. When we understand knowledge-based systems, it will be as before --
