Great read, Gennady. I have been waiting for this.
A long time.

Great article about what appears to be a very interesting book. However, the phrase about "time's winged chariot..." is a steal from a 17th century English writer and poet!

Time's winged chariot . . . yes a Marvellous poem, reminding me of . . . nevermind.

Yikes, caught red-handed. Procrastinating is what I'm doing right now, and not very constructively. Back to work.
