My friend Doug has taken me to task in e-mail for my rhetorical question at the end of the previous post, and his mail system keeps bouncing my replies, so I'll respond to his concerns here.

All I meant by "rhetorical" was that I wanted my readers to ponder the question, rather than load down the Comments box with answers which might well tend toward either the defensive or the critical. Is that so terrible?

Anyway, I've taken the bit about the question's rhetoricity (is that a word? If not, it ought to be) out of the postscript, since it obviously gave the wrong impression.
